Domino's Moree will be helping Moree Secondary College's class of 2020 raise some dough for their year 12 formal by donating $2 from every pizza sold next Wednesday.

With fundraising options limited this year as a result of COVID-19 restrictions, year 12 adviser Jason Auld said it was great for Domino's to offer to help out.

"A couple of our year 12 kids work at Domino's and Amy Egan approached me about the idea that Domino's had to support the formal," he said.

"I thought it was fantastic."

The year 12 formal will be held on November 13 - a day after the final HSC exam.

While a date has been set, the school is still in the process of finding a venue big enough to cater for the class of 54, as well as their teachers, in line with COVID-19 social distancing rules.

Although parents will be unable to attend, the school is currently looking into ways they can still be involved.

Last month the students were thrilled when the NSW government lifted the ban on school formals and are looking forward to celebrating the end of their schooling.

However, to pay for the cost of catering and venue hire fees, fundraising is essential.

Usually, year 12 students would raise money for their formal throughout the year at various school events, but with events and sporting activities unable to be held this year, fundraising has been difficult.

"It's been a really difficult year for year 12," Mr Auld said.

"Traditionally, the biggest fundraiser has been the athletics carnival. But we couldn't have that this year. We can't have barbecues, we can't go up town selling raffle tickets.

"It made it very hard to raise funds for their formal.

"The Domino's fundraiser is a lovely opportunity that a local business is providing us."

The Domino's fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, October 14.

Two dollars from every pizza sold throughout the day will be donated to the year 12 formal, to cover the cost of catering, the venue, photographer and DJ.

Mr Auld encourages everyone to buy a pizza to support the cause, and suggested businesses could have pizza parties that day.
