Domino’s have been serious dough-gooders during the pandemic.
As cases grow rapidly in the UK, we’re all looking to the NHS to care for us, with the government calling on retired medical workers and final year student nurses to help out with increased care needs during the pandemic. And to show their gratitude for all the hard work the NHS has been doing so far (and will continue to do as we fight COVID-19), Domino’s has been giving out tokens of appreciation to all NHS staff members, including free pizzas to all workers who ordered from them just last Friday.
Continuing with their tokens of gratitude, the giant pizza chain is set to donate around 100,000 pizzas across the country next week, helping to feed our local heroes and hopefully cheer them up a little bit as things get rough. The huge gesture will see all UK stores participating, with each store dropping off stacks of fresh pizzas to staff at NHS facilities as a ‘big thank you’ for their hard work during this difficult time.

The announcement reads: “From next week, our stores will be delivering piping hot pizza to say a big thank you to frontline healthcare staff. Stores across the UK will play their part to help Domino’s donate 100,000 pizzas to these heroes”.
Domino’s is currently continuing to deliver to the public, abiding the Government’s advice, and now offers contact-free delivery to help those affected by the virus receive a little piece of heaven amid the crisis. The contact-free delivery will allow customers to let their driver know a safe place to leave their food, where they’ll be able to collect it safely without human contact.
The chain has also implemented new measures in their stores, which are now closed to the public, with reduced teams working across the branches to ensure staff are able to work with a distance between each other.
Just yesterday, it was revealed that a quarter of a million Brits signed up to help out on the front line following the government’s call out, as over 9,500 people have been diagnosed with the virus in the UK.
