Our New Charity Pizza
- February 2, 2018 -
In the last 14 months, GB•PIZZA•CO® is incredibly proud to have raised £1378 for the Turner Contemporary’s engaging, inspiring educational programme, thanks to selling 2,756 “We ‘heart’ Turner Contemporary” pizzas. 50p from every sale went directly to the gallery’s charity.
In this new year, we have a new charity to support. Our new charity pizza will donate 50p from each sale directly to The Brain Tumour Charity. Brain tumours are the biggest killer of people under 40 and is the most under funded of cancers.
And this very personal to us. Our co-founder and owner, Rachel Seed, has been battling a brain tumour for 12 years. At the end of last year, we got some really rubbish news: the tumour had made another return, this time more aggressive than ever. She has already had four rounds of brain surgery plus radiotherapy, and is now undergoing chemotherapy. We will – Rachel, our family, friends, and our GB•PIZZA•CO family – keep fighting and keep hoping.
By supporting this amazing charity that, as well as offering support to patients, also funds much-needed pioneering research and medical trials, we hope this horrible disease will be beaten. The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours. We hope that our customers will help us raise much-needed funds for this incredibly important charity that relies 100% on voluntary donations.
Our first pizza for The Brain Tumour Charity is the braised leek, thyme and the Urban Cheese Maker’s Rebellion cheese, and is on sale now. We will also be raising money for The Brain Tumour Charity on National Pizza Day on 9th February.
We want to thank the Turner Contemporary for their blessing in changing our charity pizza’s beneficiary.
