Domino’s Pizza head office sends in a team of ‘changing room’ volunteers to improve local charity reception -

Staff from Domino’s Pizza head office visited HULA (Home for Unwanted and Lost Animals) on Wednesday, February 16, to volunteer their services in helping the charity to rejuvenate their reception area.

Domino’s donated several cabinets, chairs, notice boards, carpet tiles and paint as well as their services.  HULA asked for help in tidying up and re-organising their reception area and the Domino’sDIY SOS team were only too keen to oblige.  With some forward planning and inspiration the Domino’s volunteers performed a changing room style makeover to the room as they cleaned, tidied and transformed the area into a functional and professional looking facility.

Steve Price, HULA centre manager, said:  “We were amazed at just what the staff from Domino’s managed to achieve in one day!  Their help has been invaluable to us and we are overwhelmed by their generosity and hard work.  We are so pleased with the final result and feel we can really benefit from this change.  Fundamentally, visitors come to HULA to see and enquire about our animals, but it is nice to know that we now have a professional looking reception area in which to welcome them.

“The team from Domino’s cleverly utilised HULA’s logo colour (green) to create a branded area for us.  They gave us green noticeboards, chairs and carpet tiles as well as a painting the reception desk green.  They also helped us to designate specific areas of the room so visitors know what items we have for sale and where they should place their donated items.  We are now able to make the most of the items that we have for sale and believe that we will definitely be able to raise more money for the charity due to the support that Domino’s has provided.”

Angie Lawrence, PR Officer, for Domino’s said:  “As a company we encourage all our team members to donate a day to helping out a local charity.  I visited HULA not so long ago to adopt two cats and I could see then that their reception area was clearly in need of a tidy up.  With that in mind, I encouraged a team of volunteers from head office to get involved and before I knew it I had a keen group of staff willing and able to donate their time and energy into this project.  We are pleased to have made a difference and hope that the charity does indeed raise further funds from our hard work.”

Thanks also go to CD Wright Electrical, RobsRepairs and WJR Management Limited for their services on the day.

The volunteers all enjoyed their day at HULA and had time while they were there to visit the animals which included the two resident cows, Sapphire and Steel.  It was a memorable day for all concerned and a worthwhile activity which will hopefully bring good results for HULA.
