Domino’s Pizza Llanelli and Wales Air Ambulance launch book drive

A Domino’s Pizza store in Llanelli has started a fundraising project where they ask customers to donate unwanted books in aid of the Wales Air Ambulance charity. Based on Bridge Street in Llanelli, this Domino’s Pizza store has already created quite a buzz for this unique charity partnership.

The Wales Air Ambulance is an all-Wales charity providing vital emergency air cover for those who face life-threatening illness or injuries. The organisation receives no national government funding and relies solely on the support of the local community. Individuals and businesses across Wales visit the many Wales Air Ambulance charity shops that sells unwanted books, furniture and bric-a-brac. Domino’s Pizza has expressed its delight in partnering with this inspirational charity and hopes that its latest campaign will help the Wales Air Ambulance gather more funds that is vital to the operation of this charity.

Fast food giant Domino’s Pizza has always been involved in its local community and encourages all its franchisees to play an active part in developing and encouraging community activities. The partnership with the Wales Air Ambulance is a simple way in which stores and local people can support a worthy cause.

Franchisee of the Domino’s store in Llanelli, Tracy Bevan, said: “Wales Air Ambulance does a fantastic job in supporting the community by coming to the aid of much needed people.  We plan to reserve a space in our store especially for our customers to be able to leave their unwanted books. We are very happy to do our bit to support them and hope that this project really takes off!”

Community Fundraiser for Wales Air Ambulance, Paul Canning, said:  “We are thrilled to have the support of Domino’s Pizza.  I look forward to seeing the results of our partnership and hope that Domino’s customers will get on board with this project.  If this partnership proves successful we may look at working with other Domino’s stores in Wales.”

The books that are donated to Domino’s Pizza Llanelli (Bridge Street) are collected by the Wales Air Ambulance on a regular basis. Remember to bring along your unwanted books the next time you’re ordering a pizza!
