Have your say

Black Friday deals across the city are ten a penny but this one really will get your mouth-watering.

Pieminister on Duncan Street is going all out to get you to put your hands in your pockets - but they are giving away the profits.

Hundreds of Pieminister’s tasty treats will be up for grabs on Friday from 8.30am and every single penny given in return as a donation will go directly to the housing and homelessness charity, Shelter.

The pies being given away are a variety that have been frozen down to avoid wastage when pie-makers find they have a batch of surplus so that they are ready to be re-distributed later for good causes.

Among them will be British chicken, steak pies and Vegetarian Society Approved pies but once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Pieminister co-founder and managing director, Jon Simon said: “With many of us gearing up for a Black Friday spending spree we wanted to turn this event on its head and use it to do something good.

“Shelter helps millions of people struggling with bad housing or homelessness every year and Black Pieday is a chance to support the charity and get a pie in return.

“We think that’s money-well-spent. Our pop-up shop opposite the Corn Exchange will open at 8.30am so you can get your pies on your way to work or as you head to the shops.”

Pieminister launched a campaign in Spring this year called Little Acts of Pieness and Black Pieday is part of that. Since then Pieminister has donated 18,000 pies helping raising thousands for national and local charities.
