The new branch of Domino’s in Cheadle has recently donated more than £3,200 to the Douglas Macmillan Hospice after raising funds through a one-off charity meal deal.
The store in Tape Street, which opened up in the former Alton Castle public house earlier this year, ran a special week long deal which saw £1 from every collection order donated to the local charity.
Domino’s franchisee Peter Sidhu was at the store with his team to hand the charity cheque to Lorna Thomson, Senior Business and Community Fundraiser from the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
The money raised is set to help support the charity to provide hospice services free of charge to over 3,500 local adults, young adults and children with life-limiting illnesses in Stoke-on-Trent, North Staffordshire and the surrounding villages.
Peter said: “When I opened Cheadle, my first Domino’s store earlier this year, I knew I wanted to do my bit by supporting a local charity in the Cheadle community.
“That’s why I chose to run a special charity meal deal in aid of the Douglas Macmillan Hospice and I’m proud to be donating over £3,200.
“I know the funds will go a long way in helping the charity provide essential hospice services to those who need it most.
“I’m looking forward to supporting more local community and charity causes through in store fundraising in the future.”
Lorna Thomson, Senior Business & Community Fundraiser, Douglas Macmillan Hospice said: “This donation will make a real difference to the work we do in supporting people who have life – limiting illnesses with palliative and end of life care.
“Thanks to this donation from the Domino’s Cheadle store we can continue to be there for local families at a time when they need us most.”
