Domino’s franchisee Jill Adams has ticked off a successful drought-relief fundraiser on Wednesday, after the Moree pizza store sold more than 200 pizzas.
“Normally the store sells about 120 or 130 pizzas on a Wednesday, so it was a big difference,” Ms Adams said.
Domino’s chains across Australia kicked off the ‘Doughraiser’ on Wednesday evening, in a bid to raise money for struggling farmers. Fifty cents from every pizza sold between 4pm to 9pm was donated to Rural Aid, a charity that supports farmers and organisations of the same intent.

It is believed the pizza outlet managed to raise in excess of $174,000 across the country.
On top of the money from the pizza sales, Ms Adams said customers donated their spare change as well.
“We had a money box on the front counter. We haven’t done our banking today, but we’ll know the figure shortly.”
Ms Adams said the intake mirrored a grand final footy night. She praised the display of community support.
“Businesses in Moree make it a thing to shop locally. When something like this comes along, businesses need to support each other and support people when they fall on hard times.”
