Domino’s Pizza head office run for charity
Domino’s head office team members took part in a 10k run at Luton Hoo, in Bedfordshire, on the Sunday 23 June in aid of Domino’s corporate charity, Rays of Sunshine.
Domino’s teamed up with the children’s charity Rays of Sunshine in April of this year. This children’s charity supports thousands of seriously ill children, by granting them wishes.
The local store, based on New Bedford Road in Luton, got involved in the day. They set up a stall, selling pizza slices for a £1, in aid of the charity, as well as sending five people along to take part in the run. This store and others in the area are this week giving local residents the opportunity to donate to Rays of Sunshine, as 50p from every order placed will be donated to the charity.
Angie Lawrence, CSR and Internal Communications Manager for Domino’s Pizza, commented: “We are delighted to be working with such a fantastic charity. Over the last couple of months we have been able to witness firsthand the amazing work they do and we are wholeheartedly behind the cause. We all had great fun on the day and enjoyed taking part in the race. This is just one of the many fundraising projects we have planned this year. We hope to really make a difference to this great charity.”
Jane Sharpe, CEO of Rays of Sunshine, said: “Domino’s has already started to make such a difference to our charity and it’s wonderful that the team share our passion and commitment. They really understand what Rays of Sunshine is all about – making a child smile and creating that special memory. They have already raised in excess of £40,000 for the charity and we are so grateful for their support – it was really good to see the team there on Sunday.”
