Ricky Kan­dola, head of op­er­a­tions at SK Group, a Domino’s Pizza Fran­chise, said: “We are so pleased to be able to help Teenage Can­cer Trust in their mis­sion to raise money to sup­port teenagers with can­cer.

“A big thank you to our cus­tomers who have helped us to raise th­ese funds. Teenage Can­cer Trust is a fan­tas­tic char­ity and we are de­lighted to have them as our char­ity part­ner of choice.

“It was a great suc­cess, with the Domino’s store team and the lo­cal Chal­font St Peter res­i­dents re­ally get­ting be­hind it.”

Teenage Can­cer Trust is the only UK char­ity ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing the best pos­si­ble care and sup­port for young peo­ple aged 13 to 24 di­ag­nosed with can­cer. The char­ity has 28 spe­cial­ist Teenage Can­cer Trust units in NHS hospi­tals across the UK, in­clud­ing the UCLH Can­cer Cen­tre Lon­don, and the char­ity wants ev­ery young per­son with can­cer to have ac­cess to this spe­cial­ist sup­port, no mat­ter where they live.

Laura Za­bel, ac­count man­ager at Teenage Can­cer Trust, said: “A big thank you to Ricky and his team and also the Chal­font St Peter com­mu­nity for this valu­able do­na­tion.

“The money raised will help Teenage Can­cer Trust spe­cial­ist nurses and youth sup­port co­or­di­na­tors con­tinue to make a huge dif­fer­ence to the ex­pe­ri­ence of young peo­ple with can­cer in hos­pi­tal and help us get that one step closer to­wards our goal of sup­port­ing ev­ery young per­son with can­cer when they need us most.”

The do­na­tion comes as part of Domino’s com­mit­ment to raise £1 mil­lion for teenagers with can­cer over the next two years.
