Supporting other charities
The Greggs Foundation is not the only charity we support. Each year, we also fundraise for other charities which our people and customers feel passionate about including Children in Need, the Poppy Appeal and the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). In 2015, we supported DEC's Nepal Earthquake Appeal, raising over £67,000 through our customers' generosity.
We have supported the North of England Children's Cancer Research charity (NECCR) since 1992 and are the main sponsor of its annual Children's Cancer Run. Every competitor receives a free Greggs lunch, prepared by our staff and their families. To date, the run has raised £6 million to fund research into improving recovery rates.
