Pizza Hut spreads festive cheer to young hearts in Kingston, Manchester
WHILE embracing the spirit of giving the Pizza Hut team kicked off the holiday season with treats and gift donations to Salvation Army’s Nest Children’s Home in Kingston and Hanbury Home for Children in Manchester.
The team feted more than 50 children by delivering Pizza Hut meals and personalised gifts. They also engaged in holiday-themed festivities and games while adorning the homes with decorations during the visits.
Administrator at Salvation Army’s Nest Children’s Home Captain Keith Haughton expressed the profound impact of the annual visit.
“I truly consider it an extra special treat because they look forward to the Pizza Hut team’s visit, constantly asking, ‘When are the pizza people coming?’ What makes it even more delightful is that Pizza Hut brings something different each year.
“This year the gifts were personalised and handed to each child. It sends a message that they are each special and you have them all in your hearts. We are also so appreciative that you took the time out to decorate our home, and for all this we thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” said Haughton
The day’s festivities included carolling to the children’s favourite songs, savouring slices of pizza, engaging in lively games of hopscotch, unboxing gifts tailored to each child’s request, and collectively decorating a Christmas tree with the Pizza Hut team.
Continuing their journey of spreading joy, the Pizza Hut team headed to Kendal All Age in Manchester to share the holiday spirit with the children and staff of Hanbury Home for Children, catering to 35 children, nine staff members, and two managers.
Major Hery Leconte of the Salvation Army welcomed the gesture.
“When the children are treated in this way, and at this time especially, they feel loved and they feel remembered. For the company to engage with our children in this way it shows the love they have for others. I hope these visits become more frequent because they really do make a difference and have a great impact. Instead of once a year, let’s make it a regular thing,” said Leconte
In addition to bringing joy to the children’s homes, the Pizza Hut team extended their generosity to two top customers from each restaurant islandwide and four top digital fans.
