Derby doughnut firm Project D is donating the profits from its brand-new Rams-themed range to Derby County Community Trust.

The firm produced the range of black and white doughnuts, complete with an edible icing Ram’s logo on top, in support of the campaign to save the crisis-hit club.

The doughnuts were available at the Market Place for supporters taking part in last Sunday’s march to Pride Park Stadium ahead of the game at Birmingham City.

The firm has said that all the profits will now go to the club’s charitable arm.

In addition to the new range of doughnuts, the company has also had the logo “#Save Derby County” printed on the sides of its two white vans.

Operations manager Max Poynton said: “Although Project D delivers all over the country, we are a Derby firm, with a Derby workforce and we are proud of the city we come from.


“It’s inconceivable to imagine Derby without a football club and we knew we had to do something to get behind the brilliant efforts of everyone in the community to save the Rams.

“This is just an extra show of support and our way of thanking the fans for coming out fighting.”

It’s not the first time Project D has put back into its community; 5,000 eggs were donated to the city’s foodbank during the first lockdown and throughout 2020 the company donated 10,000 doughnuts to key workers and those delivering vaccines in the city.

Max said: “We know our doughnuts put a smile on people’s faces – that’s part of the Project D joy.

“Derby County fans need a lift at the moment, so hopefully we were able to spread a little happiness at Sunday’s march.

“And we are very happy to be working with Derby County Community Trust, supporting them to make a difference in our community.”
