J D Wetherspoon’s staff and customers have now raised £14 million for the company’s chosen charity CLIC Sargent. The charity works to support young lives struck by cancer.
Wetherspoon began its partnership with the charity in 2002.
Representatives from Wetherspoon, CLIC Sargent and Bradley Gudger, a young man who was supported by CLIC Sargent, are pictured celebrating the milestone at The Metropolitan Bar, Wetherspoon’s pub next to Baker Street underground station in London.
Wetherspoon’s chairman, Tim Martin, said: “When this partnership was launched all of those years ago, we had no idea that it would result in such a spectacular fundraising total for such an important cause.
“All of our Wetherspoon staff and customers and passionate about fundraising for the charity.
“We look forward to raising even more money for CLIC Sargent to assist them in the wonderful work they do throughout the year.”
