Domino’s Pizza is raising the dough for L&D Helipad Appeal

Domino’s Pizza in Luton and Dunstable have raised a fantastic £15,000 towards the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital’s (L&D) Appeal to build a Helipad on the Lewsey Road site.

The £15,000 was raised through various promotional activities and events which have taken place over the last couple of months, and is the first part of a fundraising drive to raise a total of £100,000 for the Helipad Appeal.

Team members from our local Domino’s have participated in fundraising challenges, such as the Love Luton Marathon and a 10K Run, and held fundraising days at their stores, and donated proceeds from pizza sales.

The cheque was presented at the grand opening of their newest store in Riddy lane in Luton on 7 November to Sarah Amexheta and Bianca-Lee John from the L&D’s Fundraising team, and L&D A&E staff nurse Emma Chandler.

Franchisee for the Domino’s Luton stores, Arshad Yasin, said: “We are so pleased to be able to help the L&D in their mission to raise much-needed funds and help build a helipad in Luton. A big thank you to our customers who have helped us to raise these funds whilst enjoying a delicious, piping hot pizza. The L&D Hospital is a pillar of our community and we are delighted to fundraise for them.”

Bianca-Lee John added, “We are so grateful to Domino’s staff and customers for supporting our Helipad Appeal – it’s great to see our local community getting so involved in fundraising and we are excited to see what else they will be doing in support of the Appeal.”
