Little Acts of Pie-ness

Since the start we’ve donated pies to good causes, from homelessness hostels to community fairs to fundraising banquets.  We call these Little Acts of Pie-ness and we’ve put well over 150,000 pies to good use in this way already.

There have been some BIG Little Acts of Pie-ness over the years too….

Our ongoing partnership with FRANK Water involves raising funds for their DrinkMe:SaveLives initiative through sales of our Pieminister 5% lager and also through a discretionary tap water donation in our restaurants. The money we raise helps FRANK provide safe water and sanitation to men, women and children in northern India and Nepal.  Summer ’19 saw some of us Peddle & Paddle for FRANK too, to boost our donations even further.

UKHarvest distributes good quality food donations to UK charities and we donated 10,000 pies to them to help provide much needed nourishment to those who need it the most.

BLACK PIEDAY

A refreshing alternative to the usual Black Friday spending-frenzy our annual Black Pieday events encourage people to give to charity in return for a pie.  Hundreds have been up for grabs each November through our ‘free pie popup shops’ with every penny going to Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity.

A PIE-FOREST FOR TEMWA

Our Buy One Get One Tree campaign raised enough funds to plant a Pieminister forest in Malawi.  We set ourselves a target of 50,000 trees for Temwa’s forestry project but we smashed this target, giving the charity a total of 57,176 trees instead.

OUR CATTLE DRIVE

The aim of this campaign for Send a Cow was to raise enough money to give 30 families in Africa the livestock, seeds, training and on-going support they need to become flourishing farmers.

In 2014 Jon Simon went to West Kenya with Send a Cow to see how the £35,000 we raised was helping impoverished communities to become self-sufficient.Watch the video here.
