After the last 10 months of coronavirus restrictions and lockdowns thousands of Brits are feeling lonely and like they haven’t connected with family.
With the end not yet in sight a lot of us are bored of video quizzes and phone calls as our only way of seeing loved ones.
But, there’s a variety of other activities available which you may not have heard of yet.
To encourage people to spend time together – even when apart – Pizza Pilgrims is giving away 1,000 Pizza in the Post kits.
You can nominate a loved one to send a free kit to and then get one yourself.
How have your spent time with family during the pandemic? Let us know in the comments...
This means you can both whip up freshly made pizza together while you catch up.
After all, there’s not much going on to talk about right now so it’s always fun to have a new topic to approach.
Beginning from January 19 you can visit the Pizza Pilgrim’s website and leave a message with the reason you’re nominating your pal or family member.
You also need to add both of your addresses so that if you do luck out the kits can be delivered that week.
Each box will come with everything that you need to make pizza… in a frying pan.
Yep, so you don’t need fancy equipment, pizza stones or special oven settings.
The promotion is running for a month with 250 kits available each week.
And, the competition is running to support the Samaritans who provide emotional support to people in distress.
Plus, Pizza Pilgrims will be donating all profits from the sale of their “Pizza & Love” T-shirts to the Samaritans.
Customers will be able to add a 50p donation to the Central London branch of the charity for the Pizza in the Post delivery.
Pizza Pilgrims Co-Founder James Elliot says: “We’re passionate about the ability of food to bring people together, and never has this been more important with the current social distancing measures in place.
“Over lockdown our Pizza in the Post kits have been a great way to create a sense of occasion in the home, and we have seen an increasing number of our customers connecting virtually and creating their own pizza cook-along classes with friends and family both near and far.
“We’re proud to continue our work with the Samaritans and support the central London branch with this fundraising initiative, who have been a huge support to so many people.”
Emma Randle, Branch Director for the Samaritans added: “It has been a winter like no other.
“The challenges that many people face during this season have been felt more acutely this year with the pandemic.
“There couldn’t be a better time to reach out for a chat with someone you care about.
“Just taking time to really listen to another person can help them work through what’s on their mind.”
