Black Pie Day is coming to Pieminister, in support of Shelter

We first renamed Black Friday in November 2015 to raise funds for Shelter and this year we’ve taken things one step further, baking our pies in a black charcoal-pastry.

These Black Pieday pies will be available at lunchtime on Friday 23 November in Pieminister Trentham and every penny from black pie sales will go to the housing and homelessness charity.

A refreshing alternative to the usual Black Friday spending-frenzy, Pieminister’s Black Pie Day is an opportunity to spend wisely, giving to a good cause in return for delicious pies.

Pieminister’s vegan pie Kevin (a mushroom, tomato and red wine pie) and Moo (a British beef steak and Gem Ale pie) are the two pies that have been revamped for the day. Both pies will be on the menu from 12noon for £5 each, every penny of which will go direct to Shelter to help people who are struggling with bad housing or homelessness.

Enjoy your Black Pieday pie on its own or choose from a delicious selection of sides. You could even upgrade to a classic or vegan Mothership, Pieminister’s legendary pie feast.

Andy Harris, director of fundraising at Shelter said, “This is such a fun idea and a great way to spend money on Black Friday. By buying one of these pies you can show your support for our fight against homelessness and bad housing. The money raised will help us provide advice and support to the thousands of families facing the grim prospect of homelessness this winter.”
