The money was raised through a variety of activities including a darts tournament, pub quizzes, themed events and CLIC Sargent’s UK-wide fundraising Wig Wednesday, where pub staff wore wigs for the day to support children who may lose their hair through cancer treatment.
CLIC Sargent’s senior account manager, Liz Lowrey, said: “We’re so grateful to our friends at J D Wetherspoon who have shown such dedication to supporting CLIC Sargent.
“It’s not long since we were celebrating reaching £10 million; so, to have raised another £1 million is a fantastic achievement.
“The funds raised make a huge difference to what we can do to support children and young people with cancer – along with their families.”
