On Sunday June 10th, whilst the people of Cardiff enjoyed a scorcher of a Sunday, the team from Canton restaurant Dusty Knuckle were hard at work.
After a full day of trading at the RSPCA’s Big Wwp_ies Live event in Sophia Gardens, they rustled up thirty of their award-winning pizzas and donated them to the Cardiff volunteers who were busy taking donations for Soccer Aid for UNICEF.
Staff from the BT Call Centre on Park Street had given up their Sunday to take calls from members of the public wanting to donate to this year’s Soccer Aid for UNICEF appeal.
Soccer Aid helps to raise funds to help disadvantaged children around the world.Every year, a mix of football stars and celebrities play a charity football match to encourage the public to donate.
Stars who took part in this year’s event included Brendan Cole, Olly Murs and Damian Lewis.
Dusty Knuckle founder Phill Lewis explained “We wanted to do our bit for this year’s Soccer Aid appeal, and when we found out that the BT Call Centre staff were giving up their time to take donations from the public, we figured we could at least make sure they were well-fed whilst they worked.
It was lovely seeing how enthusiastic everyone was about such a great cause, and we’re pleased to have been able to play a small part.”
Over the last 12 years, 24 million has been raised through Soccer Aid events, helping UNICEF be there for more children than any other humanitarian organisation.
Recently, Phill Lewis and others announced a brand new food festival in Cardiff, which is happening in July. See more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6-sWYKtaLw
