Our Charity

SINCE 2002, WETHERSPOON HAS RAISED £10M FOR CLIC SARGENT, THE CHARITY SUPPORTING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH CANCER – THANKS TO THE AMAZING EFFORTS AND GENEROSITY OF OUR CUSTOMERS AND STAFF

 

Since it began with a chance meeting in 2002, the partnership between Wetherspoon and CLIC Sargent has gone from strength to strength – every year.  Wetherspoon is extremely proud to announce that the fundraising total, for the charity supporting young cancer patients, has now topped an incredible £10 million – and continues to climb. This remarkable fundraising achievement is all thanks to the enthusiasm, dedication and commitment of our customers, employees and local communities.

 

Target

When Barry McGuigan launched our initial target of raising £500,000, back in 2002, few could have predicted the phenomenal success of the collaboration. You have run, jumped, cycled, dressed up, dressed down, sat in baths of beans, custard and jelly, shaved and waxed, baked cakes and thrown ice buckets, climbed hills and mountains and played football, golf and darts – to name just a few of the fundraising events.

 

Tim Martin, Wetherspoon’s chairman, said: “It’s an incredible achievement – and we’re all delighted to have hit the £10-million milestone.

 

Wonderful

“CLIC Sargent is a wonderful charity – and staff and customers really engage with the work it does supporting children and young people coping with cancer, along with their families. They’re constantly coming up with new ways to raise money and keep this partnership flourishing.”

 

Every day, 10 children and young people hear the shocking news they have cancer. CLIC Sargent provides clinical, practical and emotional support to help them to cope with cancer and get the most out of life. Lorraine Clifton, CLIC Sargent’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted that J D Wetherspoon has reached the £10-million milestone for CLIC Sargent.

 

Dedication

“This is an incredible achievement – and we are extremely grateful for the enthusiasm and dedication shown by all the staff and customers who have been tirelessly fundraising for us since 2002.

 

“J D Wetherspoon is our longest-standing corporate partner and has shown huge support to CLIC Sargent. “The funds will help us in our work, supporting children and young people whose life has been turned upside down by cancer – providing practical, emotional and financial support from the point of diagnosis onwards.”
