Domino’s Pizza customers have shown how generous they can be by donating to the Northern Ireland’s Children’s Hospice (NICH), via Pennies, the electronic charity box. Since October 2011, Domino’s customers have been able to round up their online orders and donate this money to the NICH, with a fantastic £5000 being raised in just over a year.
The NICH cares for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and supports their families and those close to them. Care is provided across Northern Ireland.
To celebrate the occasion, the local Domino’s Pizza store in Glengormley decided it was time for Danny Domino, Domino’s Pizza’s official mascot, to pay the children a visit and brighten up their day. Christmas also came early for the staff as the team brought along some hot, fresh pizza for them to enjoy.
Amit Abhol, Deputy Operations Manager for Domino’s Pizza in Northern Ireland said: “We are grateful to our customers for donating their loose change. It is fantastic that in just over a year we have raised £5,000 for the NICH. I hope our customers will continue to be as generous over the coming year as their pennies really do make a difference to these children.”
Alison Hutchinson, CEO of Pennies, said: “Domino’s customers have made an incredible contribution to the Pennies movement from day one. It is brilliant to see their generosity making a real difference to the young patients at NICH and their families. .”
Ellen Hillen, Corporate Fundraiser for the NICH said: “We are thrilled with the donation we have received from Domino’s Pizza customers. All those pennies really do add up and the money raised is being put to good use, helping to enhance the lives of these children.”
