Giving back to the local communities in which we operate is something we are committed to.

From humble beginnings in Wardour Street to hundreds of restaurants worldwide, things didn’t happen overnight. We grew one restaurant at a time, with local people joining our team and making each restaurant part of their community.

We know we have a role to play in each community and we’re privileged to be able to make a difference. Whether we’re raising money and giving time to worthy causes or throwing open our kitchen doors to get primary school kids cooking.

Here are some of the ways we are helping to make a difference.


Jazz is essential to our heritage at PizzaExpress, and our partnership with Nordoff and Robbins is one way we stay true to Peter Boizot’s legacy. Nordoff and Robbins’ vision is to live in a world where through music therapy, human potential is recognised, witnessed and celebrated regardless of profound disability, illness or social exclusion.

As part of the partnership with Nordoff and Robbins, every Padana pizza ordered at PizzaExpress includes a discretionary 25p donation to the charity.


Venice in Peril is a charity which has worked in partnership with local stakeholders for more than 50 years to protect the city, its culture and its environment.

Whenever you order a Funghi di Bosco pizza, a discretionary 25p donation will be made to the charity.


Place2Be’s mission is to improve the mental wellbeing and prospects of children, their families and communities across the UK. Through their various support programmes, 70% of children record an improvement in wellbeing, 68% of students cause fewer problems in class, and 75% find it easier to have and keep friends.


Enable Ireland provides disability services from 43 locations across Ireland for over 600,000 people. Demand for their services has grown hugely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Enable Ireland first partnered with PizzaExpress in 2004, and since then we’ve raised more than 245,000 Euros for children and adults with disabilities.
