Six Domino’s Pizza stores in Leeds have raised over £4,200 for Help for Heroes. The fundraising took place as part of the Real Radio annual charity day last month.
Domino’s stores in Leeds city centre, Oulton, Guiseley, Headingley, Horsforth and Morley all ran a special Half for Heroes pizza promotion, whereby proceeds from medium and large pizza sales for a limited period were donated by Domino’s to Help for Heroes. Pizza lovers in Leeds got behind the fundraising and helped raise a staggering £4,278.47 for the charity.
Anil Patil, franchisee of the six Domino’s stores in Leeds who took part, said: “We were delighted to get involved with the Real Radio Help for Heroes fundraising day and do our bit to help raise funds with our Half for Heroes donations. The teams in our stores and our customers all got behind the fundraising and did a grand job to raise much needed funds for a very worthy cause. We are very pleased to be able to hand over this money for Help for Heroes.”
Steve South, Managing Director for Real Radio Yorkshire said; “We are delighted that Domino’s joined in our Help for Heroes day, along with a plethora of other businesses across Yorkshire. As part of our group, GMG Radio, we have raised in excess of £200,000 for the charity through this year’s day, and the outstanding support of Domino’s is appreciated by us and all those who will benefit through such fervent fundraising. We are very grateful to Domino’s for their support and look forward to working with them in the future.”
Real Radio’s annual charity day seeks to raise funds for Help for Heroes, which supports members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of their country.
In addition to the donations being made by Domino’s from the pizza, the stores also supported the Real Radio presenters with a team of Domino’s wobbleboaders and Domino’s mascot, Danny Domino, as they completed a truck pull from Elland Road to the Real Radio studios. Pete Egerton, one of the presenters, also joined the team at Domino’s to try his hand at pizza making in-store during the Half for Heroes promotion.
