Macmillan Nurse tucks into a roast free of charge at The Bamburgh.

Throughout this month, The Bamburgh is inviting the charity’s nurses along to enjoy a free roast every Sunday.

The gesture by the pub in Bamburgh Avenue, South Shields, is part of its fundraising drive for Macmillan during May.

The month also marks International Nurses Day on May 12 – the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

To claim the meal, Macmillan nurses and professionals simply need to present Macmillan identification when placing an order.

Richard Hodgson, general manager at the Bamburgh, said: “Macmillan nurses work tirelessly to support people with cancer, and their care makes such a difference in the local community.

“We’re proud to support Macmillan and want to reward them, so we hope they enjoy our offer of a delicious free roast every Sunday throughout May.”

Macmillan is the pub company’s chosen charity after raising more than £2million in the last three years, and this is just one of a number of activities that The Bamburgh will be doing this year to support the charity.

Rachel Gascoigne, partnership manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Our nurses and other professionals work so hard to make lives better for people affected by cancer, so it’s wonderful to see their work recognised on International Nurses’ Day.

“We want to thank Bamburgh and everyone at Greene King for their generosity in helping to show our professionals how much their work is appreciated.”
