Franchisee Sally Illingworth and staff at Crust Parap successfully raised $3,529.60 for the Make A Wish Foundation Australia on Sunday night, when 200+ Darwin locals went to the store to support the cause.
Sally says, “Since we started trading in November of 2014 we have chosen to celebrate each business birthday by raising dough for the foundation as a gesture of appreciation for how they supported my brother throughout his cancer journey from the age of ten.
“With our success on Sunday night, we have proudly donated $12,076 in three years which is an amazing and humbling achievement for us as a small pizza business in the Northern Territory. We hope that our efforts encourage territory businesses of all sizes to challenge themselves and use their presence as an opportunity to drive positive social outcomes and inspire the lives of others.
“Since November 2014 we have used our presence to support the Darwin community as much as we possibly can, including the donation of 101 Large Pizzas to the evacuees of the Darwin River Floods in December of 2015.
“We express our thanks to the Darwinites who have helped us to raise $12,076 and look forward to raising more dough in 12 months.”
