'Truly honored'

"Anyone who cares about creating happier lives and a better world for animals will be inspired by the incredible work that Friend Farm Animal Sanctuary does," Tim Barclay, co-owner and co-founder of Purezza, said about the sanctuary, which provides care and refuge for rescue animals that were born into the factory farm system.

"I've always loved the work that they do for rescue animals, and when it came to choosing who to support with our latest charity pizza there was unanimous agreement from everyone at Purezza that it should be FFAS.

"We're truly honored to be able to donate to them through the launch of our latest pizza."

The Laughing Pig is available now at Purezza's branches in Camden and Brighton.
