Papa John’s to raise money for Save the Children this Christmas
Sponsored walk to the top of Pen y Fan.
Papa John’s, the leading pizza franchise chain, has teamed-up with Save the Children again this year to raise funds for children around the world. Papa John’s is committed to donating £250,000 to support Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
The annual Christmas Jumper Day, will be sweeping the nation on December 16 as schools, homes and businesses across the country will be ditching their day-to-day dress for a christmas jumper, as ‘seriously silly as they dare’, and making a £2 donation to Save the Children.
For a second year running, Papa John’s will #dough-nate 50p to Save the Children for every XXL pizza sold from November 21, 2016 to January 2, 2017.
Money raised could give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help buy nutritious food for their entire family, or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again.
As a flagship partner of Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, Papa John’s staff will be involved in various activities to support this year’s campaign. The Papa John’s head office team will be wearing festive woolly Christmas jumpers and donating to help the charity do whatever it takes to make sure the world’s forgotten children get the chance to have a brighter future.
Some of the other Papa John’s fundraising initiatives include:
Cycling to Paris from the Papa John’s head office, a casual 350 miles away!
Breaking up into individual groups at head office with the aim to raise £2,200 per team.
Travelling the UK, visiting Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and London to recreate the nation’s favourite pizza using jumpers.
Staff have also recently completed a sponsored walk to the top of Southern Britain’s highest mountain, Pen y Fan, which has resulted in raising just under £3,000.
Papa John’s is also holding a jumper amnesty where members of the public can get involved too. Once they have chosen their favourite jumper to wear on Christmas Jumper Day, if they have any old jumpers they don’t need, they can bring them to one of Papa John’s Christmas Jumper Day Tour locations, where they will be passed on to Save the Children to sell in their charity shops to raise even more money.
Online customers have also been invited to round up pennies at the checkout to the nearest pound and the amount added will be donated.
