Pizzas bring smiles to hospital
SOME very big smiles spread across little faces yesterday when Domino's Pizza made a special delivery to the Bundaberg Hospital Children's Ward.
Sick youngsters were treated to a tasty lunch courtesy of the pizza shop, which is trying to make 25,000 pizzas in one week and 7000 pizzas in one day on Saturday to make it into the Guinness Book of Records.
As part of the attempt, Domino's Pizza Bundaberg store manager Deanna Gatti said $5000 would be donated to the ward to aid in the purchase of new equipment.
"Kids are very close to our heart so we wanted to do something that would benefit them," she said.
Ms Gatti said 7300 pizzas had been made by 4pm yesterday.
One of the sick kids to benefit was two-year-old Lynk Turnbull, who has been stuck in hospital with a broken leg since before Christmas.
"He loves the balloons and he likes pizza so he's happy," dad Luke said.
Bundaberg Health Services Foundation manager Maria Burnet said the donation would make a significant difference to the hospital's littlest patients.
