A Spalding pub is offering Macmillan nurses a free roast dinner every Sunday throughout May to thank them for their hard work.

The Pied Calf on Sheepmarket, which is owned by Greene King, is inviting all Macmillan nurses to enjoy a free roast dinner every Sunday in May as part of the pub’s Macmillan May fundraising drive.

THursday is also International Nurses Day, 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.

Laura Elwes, general manager at Pied Calf, said: “Macmillan nurses work tirelessly to support people with cancer, and their care makes such a difference in the local community. May is a key month for nurses, both in the UK and internationally, so we decided to mark our Macmillan May fundraising drive and celebrate their hard work.

“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 £2 million in the last three years, and this is just one of a number of activities that the Pied Calf 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 the Pied Calf and everyone at Greene King for their generosity in helping to show our professionals how much their work is appreciated. This is a truly lovely gesture and is a brilliant way to kick off our fourth year as Greene King’s chosen partners.”
