Big hearted staff at Domino’s in Garforth showed that they are more than just great pizza producers when they heard about a local little girl who has a rare liver disease.
Three year-old Ada Butterfield from Allerton Bywater was born with biliary atresia. Her condition means a lifetime of medical care and maybe even a liver transplant one day. Her family have received information and support from Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF) since her diagnosis, and it was when planning a fundraising evening for the charity, that Ada’s auntie approached Domino’s to ask if they would provide some vouchers as a raffle prize.
“Domino’s were happy to contribute and asked about the charity and what they did,” explains Ada’s mum Emma. “When they heard how they were supporting a local child, they invited us in for a morning of pizza making which Ada thoroughly enjoyed. They then topped it all with a £400 donation to CLDF!”
“As soon as I was contacted about a donation towards CLDF and given more information regarding the charity, I knew that it was a great cause for brilliant, brave children and families,” explains store manager, Cameron Fisher. “It was a pleasure to play a part in the help that this CLDF provides for sufferers of liver disease and those around them. It was a pleasure meeting Ada and her family, learning about the progress Ada has made and how CLDF are such a backbone of support. I hope they had a great time making pizzas and I hope CLDF can continue to keep bringing smiles to families in need. Keep up the great work!”
Alison Taylor, Chief Executive of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation commented: “CLDF is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all childhood liver diseases, by providing information and emotional support, funds for research and a voice for all those affected. In order to do this however, we rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, so we are very grateful for Domino’s contribution and delighted to hear what a wonderful morning Ada had with them.”
