Big hearted staff at Domino’s in Garforth stumped up some dough after they heard about a local little girl who has a rare liver disease.

Three year-old Ada Butterfield, from Allerton Bywater, was born with biliary atresia. Her condition means a lifetime of medical care and maybe a liver transplant in the future. Her auntie approached Domino’s to ask for raffle prizes for a fundraising day Ada’s family was organising in support of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF).

Ada’s mum Emma said: “Domino’s were happy to contribute and asked about the charity and what they did. When they heard how they were supporting a local child, they invited us in for a morning of pizza making which Ada thoroughly enjoyed. They then topped it all with a £400 donation to CLDF.”

Store manager Cameron Fisher said: “As soon as I was contacted about a donation towards CLDF and given more information regarding the charity, I knew that it was a great cause for brilliant, brave children and families. It was a pleasure to play a part in the help that this CLDF provides for sufferers of liver disease and those around them. It was a pleasure meeting Ada and her family, learning about the progress Ada has made and how CLDF are such a backbone of support. I hope they had a great time making pizzas and I hope CLDF can continue to keep bringing smiles to families in need. Keep up the great work!”

Alison Taylor, chief executive of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation added: “CLDF is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all childhood liver diseases, by providing information and emotional support, funds for research and a voice for all those affected. In order to do this however, we rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, so we are very grateful for Domino’s contribution and delighted to hear what a wonderful morning Ada had with them.”
