A Martlesham pub is offering Macmillan professionals a free meal throughout January.

The Red Lion Chef & Brewer pub restaurant is inviting all Macmillan professionals to enjoy a free meal to thank them for their hard work over the festive period.

The pub which has a national partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support will supply the professionals with a free meal until January 31.

Robert Lusher, general manager at the Red Lion said: “The care and support that Macmillan professionals provide makes such a difference in the local community, which is why we want to reward Macmillan professionals in Martlesham by giving them a free meal so they have the chance to continue enjoying Christmas into January.”

In order to receive a free meal Macmillan staff will need to fill out the online form here which will generate a voucher code.

Rachel Gascoigne, senior partnership manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Macmillan nurses and professionals work extremely hard every hour of every day regardless of Christmas to support people with cancer.
