On Thursday 18 May, Domino’s stores across the UK raised an impressive £9,403 for Parkinson’s UK in just one day.
Stores across the country took part in Pizza for Parkinson's Day, a UK-wide fundraiser which saw 5p from every pizza sold going to Parkinson’s UK.
Sonia Kaur, National Assistant Brand and Campaign Manager at Domino’s said, “We imagined the day would raise about £5,000 – so I am so thrilled that we exceeded all expectations by selling 188,000 pizzas! It was an absolute pleasure working with the team at Parkinson’s UK – knowing our fundraising will make such a contribution towards finding a cure for Parkinson’s was a huge motivator for staff.”

Funds raised will support our We Won’t Wait research campaign, which focuses on the fact that it’s been 200 years since Parkinson’s was identified as a condition, and yet there’s still no cure.
Domino’s Pizza Group is the UK’s leading pizza company with over 1,000 stores and 35,000 colleagues, making around 85 million pizzas a year!
The fundraiser was developed following our existing partnership with Full House Restaurants Holdings Ltd, a franchise of 43 Domino's Pizza stores.
Ian Savage, Corporate Relationships Manager at Parkinson’s UK said: “We’re so grateful to our partner, Full House Restaurants Holdings Ltd, for inviting all their friends at Domino’s to get involved.
“In addition to Pizza for Parkinson’s Day, 83 of their staff raised £14,000 by trekking up Mount Snowdon last week – an incredible achievement! Huge thanks to everyone who took part.
£23,000 raised in one week
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of Domino’s Pizza Group – collectively raising over £23,000 in one week is an absolutely staggering accomplishment, and will have an enormous impact on our research into Parkinson’s. We can’t thank them enough.”
