Roadchef staff and customers have reached their goal of raising £5m for Cancer Research UK in their sixth year of partnership.


Since partnering with Cancer Research UK in 2018, Roadchef have continuously championed CRUK’s vision to create a world where everybody lives longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer. Today, Roadchef’s motivation to fundraise, deliver health awareness messaging and encourage engagement from staff and customers is as strong as ever. We’re delighted that in December 2023 Roadchef hit their magical £5m milestone, raised in support of CRUK.

The support and dedication of everyone at Roadchef who has raised vital funds to support life-saving research is unwavering. It has been wonderful to see Roadchef employees take part in fundraising events throughout the partnership, highlights include golf days, running the London Marathon and Roadchef’s Walkathon.

Mike Jackson, Head of Charity at Roadchef commented:

“We are incredibly proud of our successful and long-standing partnership with Cancer Research UK. It has been a tremendous experience to help fundraise for an amazing charity and worthwhile cause which is close to our hearts. Cancer affects all of us and by working together we can support life-saving research and beat cancer. We are grateful to all of our customers, staff and individuals who have come together to take part in various activities to help us achieve our collective goal of raising £5 million for Cancer Research UK.”

The partnership between CRUK and Roadchef embodies the definition of a Partnership with a National Charity in every sense. Their shared values of beating cancer through research and raising awareness of cancer prevention and early diagnosis are evidenced every day.  Roadchef’s passion, determination and ability to identify innovative opportunities throughout every part of their business ensures that even after six years, their approach and results are still as ambitious as when the partnership began.

Eve Mitchell, Head of Partnerships Management from Cancer Research UK, commented on the partnership:

“This staggering amount of money has been raised thanks to the dedication of Roadchef’s staff and customers and we want to thank everyone who has given their time and taken part in fundraising activities over the last six years. This money will make an incredible difference in continuing our vital work to help save more lives and we can’t wait to see the success of our partnership with Roadchef in 2024.”
