Papa John's smashes fundraising target for Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day

The brand raised £265,000 for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day over the festive period.

The pizza brand donated 50p to the children’s charity for every XXL pizza sold following its pledge to raise £250,000.

The fundraiser was also supported by an experiential tour with a pepperoni pizza being re-created out of jumpers in a three-metre installation. As part of the tour, which visited Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and London, Papa John’s offered sampling opportunities and organised a ‘Jumper Amnesty’, which gained heaps of jumpers from the public, plus sweaters from celebrities, such as CITV’s London Hughes.

David Scott, Senior Director - Marketing, Papa John’s Pizza, said: “Papa John’s head office staff and franchisees once again went the extra mile to ensure this year’s fundraising campaign was more successful than ever before."

“Save the Children carries out vital work to help vulnerable children across 120 countries, including the UK. At Papa John’s we are proud to be the flagship partner for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day and delighted that our £265,000 will make an XXL difference to the quality of children’s lives around the world.”
