A LIMITED edition green burger has been launched in a bid to boost funds for cancer charity Macmillan and is available in Salisbury.

The brightly coloured burger has been unveiled by Greene King and Hungry Horse as part of its partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support.

The burger, which has been named the ‘Greene Warrior’, is available now in 600 pubs nationwide, including the Greyfisher pub on Ayleswade Road.

This dish features either a crispy chicken or grilled beef patty, topped with a layer of fajita seasoned mac ‘n’ cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayo, all sandwiched between two green burger buns.

The buns have been dyed with spinach to give them the green colouring.

£1 from every green burger sold will be donated towards Macmillan’s fundraising efforts, helping the charity continue its work providing physical, financial and emotional support for those affected by cancer.

The limited-edition burger will be up for grabs until September 30, or while stocks last.

Andy Wilson, the managing director at Greene King, said: “It’s been a challenging year for Macmillan which is experiencing a fundraising crisis due to Covid-19, so we hope the launch of our new green burger will help provide our guests in Salisbury with a fun way of helping to support the charity at a time of need.

“While it might look slightly unusual, the Greene Warrior is a delicious way to do your bit for a very important cause – with its eye-catching appearance, tasty chicken or beef patty and ‘Macmillan’ mac ‘n’ cheese filling, it’s guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser for local burger lovers. We can’t wait to welcome our locals in to give it a try – your friends will be green with envy.”

It has been a challenging year for Macmillan as the charity has reported significant losses in donations due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It anticipates a loss of 35 to 50 per cent of its fundraising revenue this year which it uses to deliver vital services to people living with cancer and to people working in the NHS.

Rachel Gascoigne, senior partnerships manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Our partnership with Greene King is so successful and our sincere thanks go to their customers and team members. We are almost entirely reliant on the generosity of our partners and the public and are grateful to Greyfisher for their kind donation on every Greene Warrior burger and Mint-Millan dessert purchased in September.”
