After 10 months of lockdown restrictions, many people are feeling lonely or disconnected from loved ones.
We might not be able to meet up – but there are still things we can do together.
To encourage people to spend some virtual time catching up, Pizza Pilgrims is giving away 1,000 of their Pizza in the Post kits.
Each person can nominate a loved one to send a free kit to, as well as receiving one themselves.
It means that you can make a pizza at the same time as someone you miss, giving you something to do together as you chat (because let’s be honest, there’s not much to talk about right now).
Starting from January 19, you’ll be able to visit their website and leave a message with the reason you’re nominating a loved one.
You’ll also need to provide both your address details to be in with a chance of receiving two kits delivered that week.
Each kit includes everything you need to make a pizza in a frying pan, so you don’t need to worry about fancy equipment.
The promotion will run for four weeks with 250 kits available each time.
It’s part of a campaign the chain is involved with to support the Samaritans.
It is also be donating all profits from the sales of their new ‘Pizza & Love’ t-shirt and customers will be able to add a 50p donation to the Samaritans Central London branch for their Pizza in the Post delivery.
Pizza Pilgrims Co-Founder James Elliot says: ‘We’re passionate about the ability of food to bring people together, and never has this been more important with the current social distancing measures in place.
‘Over lockdown our Pizza in the Post kits have been a great way to create a sense of occasion in the home, and we have seen an increasing number of our customers connecting virtually and creating their own pizza cook-along classes with friends and family both near and far.
‘We’re proud to continue our work with the Samaritans and support the central London branch with this fundraising initiative, who have been a huge support to so many people.’
Emma Randle, Branch Director for the Samaritans added: ‘It has been a winter like no other. The challenges that many people face during this season have been felt more acutely this year with the pandemic.
‘There couldn’t be a better time to reach out for a chat with someone you care about. Just taking time to really listen to another person can help them work through what’s on their mind.’
