Tuck into a black pie for Black Friday and help the homeless.

In a refreshing alternative to the sales spending spree, the chefs at PieMinister on Duncan Street in Leeds have gone pie-eyed and renamed Black Friday - Black Pie Day.

The 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 and will be baked in a black charcoal pastry.

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.

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.”
