Domino’s, the nation’s best loved pizza, has opened a new store in Southampton at 54 Mercator Close, Romsey Road, to give locals even greater access to their favourite pizza. The new opening coincides with the fifth anniversary of the partnership between Domino’s and Teenage Cancer Trust, which has raised £4 million to support young people with cancer. To mark both occasions, local Domino’s franchise, Solent Pizza Delivery Limited has donated £5,000 to support the specialist Teenage Cancer Trust unit in Southampton General Hospital.
Since 2015, the Southampton community has made a significant contribution to the local Teenage Cancer Trust unit with weekly pizza deliveries to the young people on the ward and their nurses. In addition, over £32,000 has been raised during these five years thanks to the fundraising efforts of store team members and Solent Pizza Delivery Limited office team at local events and collection pots in stores.
As well as continuing support for Teenage Cancer Trust, the new Southampton – Romsey Road store will give the community a welcome employment boost by serving up 45 local positions including customer service representatives, pizza chefs and delivery drivers.
Wayne Benson, Managing Director at Solent Pizza Delivery Limited commented: “We’re thrilled to be opening another store in Southampton as we not only bring a slice of the action even closer to our customer’s doors, but mark an incredible five years of partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust with a £5,000 donation.
“We are incredibly proud to have worked so closely with the local Teenage Cancer Trust unit to raise valuable donations and help boost spirits with deliveries of our piping hot pizzas for young people going through treatment. Thanks to everyone who has donated over the past five years, you can continue to do so via Pennies at all UK Domino’s stores or online.”
Paul McKenzie, Director of Fundraising at Teenage Cancer Trust, said: “We’re extremely proud of our five-year partnership with Domino’s and everything it’s delivered; it’s a real testament to the ongoing passion and commitment of customers, franchisees and colleagues. This £5,000 donation will help us provide the best treatment and support to the young people who are going through cancer treatment including those in Southampton.”
