On Wednesday 21st November PizzaExpress will host Snowball Dough Ball Day in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. From 11.30am you can visit your nearest PizzaExpress restaurant and purchase a delicious portion of Snowball Dough Balls for just £1 – with all proceeds going to the charity.
In 2018, for the first time, shoppers can also snap-up a pack of festive favourites from their local Tesco supermarket. Each snow globe contains 16 Snowball Dough Balls flavoured with cinnamon and coated in caster sugar served alongside a vanilla dip. Available from just £3, £1 from each pack sold on the 21st November will also be ‘dough-nated’ to Macmillan.
Every year PizzaExpress celebrates the launch of its Christmas menu with Snowball Dough Ball Day. This is the third year running that the restaurant brand will use the day to raise funds for Macmillan.
PizzaExpress has raised over £1.5 million for Macmillan over the past two and a half years, helping the charity provide vital support for people living with cancer. Just £28 could cover the cost of a Macmillan nurse for an hour. Helping navigate treatment side effects, being a shoulder to cry on and even sharing practical advice like diet and lifestyle tips, these nurses do everything they can to make cancer that little bit more bearable.
£552 could fund a Macmillan support worker for a week helping make sure those in need get the support they need and are entitled to. Around £40,000 could pay for a quiet room in a Macmillan cancer information and support centre, where people with cancer and their families can spend some much-needed quality time together during exhausting treatment days.
Snowball Dough Balls are a festive favourite combining PizzaExpress’ iconic Dough Balls, with a sprinkle of cinnamon, a flurry of icing sugar and a choice between a generous vanilla cream, fruit coulis or salted caramel dip.
