Domino’s Pizza has made a delivery with a difference by donating a brand new Mini to a leading north-east charity’s fundraising campaign.
CLAN Cancer Support had initially appealed to businesses to sponsor the car by taking up five advertising slots before the fast food outlet generously stepped in to support the charity.
The public will be able to get a slice of the fundraising action as the Mini will be driven to a wide range of shows, exhibitions and shopping centres across the length and breadth of the north-east before being raffled off for CLAN.
Susan Crighton, CLAN fundraising manager, said:
“We were absolutely delighted when Domino’s Pizza came forward with the Mini. It is such a generous gesture which means a lot as the raffle is a hugely important fundraising event for us which gets a lot of support from the public.
“The car will soon be going on a fantastic tour of the north-east to sell tickets for the raffle, which will also be available to purchase from CLAN House or from our range of charity shops across the north-east.”
The draw will also be supported by the area’s Rotary clubs who have helped conduct an annual car raffle since 2000, helping raise over £500,000 for a variety of local causes in the process.
Ian Smith, owner of the Domino’s Pizza Franchise in Aberdeen and Inverurie said:
“CLAN is a charity that is very close to my heart. The staff at CLAN House do an amazing job supporting people affected by cancer and I am happy that I have been given the opportunity to help with their fundraising activities.”
