A Frome family are hosting a takeaway pizza night on Saturday 25th April from 5pm to 8pm to raise funds for cancer counselling charity We Hear You (WHY).
The Mitchell family of Long Ground, Frome have an outdoor pizza oven at their home and have raised thousands of pounds for charities in the past, including We Hear You. a 14 inch pizza with three toppings costs £7.50, with all proceeds going to We Hear You's free professional counselling service for people affected or bereaved by life threatening conditions, including Covid-19.
Due to Covid-19, this event will adhere to social distancing guidelines: guests will find a menu posted by the gate to 3 Long Ground and are requested to phone through their order to Teresa on 07718150081. Their pizza will be delivered to the gate boxed and ready to go. Payment will be taken via Paypal to Paypal.me/JosieMitchelljewel.
Communications Officer Lucy McMahon said:"If you've never had one of Teresa and Garry's stonebaked pizzas, it's time to put that right - they are completely delicious! Thanks so much to the Mitchell family for their support, I plan to be at the front of the queue for a perfect Saturday night."
"WHY are facing a 70% shortfall in community fundraising income as we enter what would usually be our busiest time of the year with a near-empty diary of events. We're still providing our free professional counselling service and have launched an additional Covid-19 crisis support service this week. We're determined to carry on supporting people coping with the emotional impact of a life-threatening condition, but as for many charities, the future is unsettling, so events like this are a lifeline. If you could host an event or fundraise for WHY, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org"
The takeaway pizza night runs on Saturday 25th April from 5pm to 8pm at 3, Long Ground, Frome BA11 1PJ.
