Charity and community

Raising vital funds

Pubs have always been a focal point of any community. We aim to continue that tradition by supporting and building relationships across the local area.

UK-nominated charity – Young Lives vs Cancer

The company’s UK-nominated charity is Young Lives vs Cancer (formerly CLIC Sargent). It supports children and young people with cancer – and their families. Since our partnership began in 2002, Wetherspoon has raised over £23 million for the charity. This achievement is thanks to the generosity and commitment of our customers and employees.

Republic of Ireland-nominated charity – LauraLynn

In 2015, Wetherspoon nominated LauraLynn as its supported charity in the Republic of Ireland. The charity provides palliative and supportive care services to meet the needs of children with life-limiting conditions – and their families.

Thanks to the efforts of customers and staff, as at July 2023 (since 2015), we have raised over €316,000.


This is the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste, by saving good food from going to waste and redistributing it to frontline charities. Since working with FareShare, Wetherspoon has donated, on average, over 300 meals a week.

Between August 2021 and July 2022 the company donated 24 tonnes of food, or 54,143 meals, to 1,118 charities. This is a total of 24 tonnes of food donations. 

The Royal British Legion poppy appeal

Our pubs continue to support this appeal, selling poppies and raising around £40,000 each year.

Local charities

Collectively, our pubs have also donated to local charities and other organisations, including the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
