Pizza party raises cash for char­ity

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The man­ager of a Ruther­glen pizza store has thanked the pub­lic for help­ing to raise £300 for ITV’s an­nual char­ity ap­peal, Text Santa, which this year is sup­port­ing Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port, Make-A-Wish® UK and Save the Chil­dren.

The pizza party at Papa John’s on 77 Green­hill Road saw free piz­zas handed out to the first 100 peo­ple that came through the doors, and for a do­na­tion, guests also re­ceived an ITV Text Santa badge.

Papa John’s set a min­i­mum do­na­tion of £3 for the piz­zas with all the money go­ing to ap­peal. The store is also do­nat­ing 50p from all XXL piz­zas sold dur­ing the fes­tive pe­riod.

In keep­ing with the sea­sonal spirit, staff at the store donned their fes­tive jumpers as part of the ap­peal’s mes­sage of ask­ing ev­ery­one to do their “bit in a Christ­mas knit”.

Store man­ager, Paul McDer­mott, said: “ITV’s Christ­mas char­ity ap­peal, Text Santa, aims to give hope to those fam­i­lies fac­ing dif­fi­cult times this Christ­mas, so we were really proud to play our part. I’m also hugely grate­ful to our cus­tomers for their gen­er­ous sup­port and do­na­tions.”
