PIZZA is usually more synonymous with a wood-fired oven than anything else fire-related.
But one local pizza business is doing its bit to help tackle fires in the region by raising money for the Rural Fire Service.
Tamworth Domino’s stores are hosting a Doughraiser today, where $1 from every pizza sold will be donated to the invaluable service.
The money is being raised to help support the Tamworth City Rural Fire Service to raise funds for equipment and training ahead of the upcoming bushfire season.
Domino’s Tamworth Regional Leader David Bird said they really wanted to support the fire service and continue the close work they currently do with the fire service.
“The Domino’s Tamworth and North Tamworth stores are huge supporters of the fire service and the great work that they do,” he said.
“Several of our team members volunteer their time to the fire service and we help where we can by donating pizzas during fire season to help feed hungry and tired volunteers.
“By hosting a Doughraiser, we hope to help the fire service raise much-needed funds and continue to support hardworking volunteers in our area.
“We are asking everyone to come down to Domino’s Tamworth and North Tamworth (today) to show their support and have some piping hot pizza, knowing it is going towards a great cause.”
The two stores are located on Phillip Street and Piper Street.
