Sheffield Company Reaches for the Pies for Charity
2nd April 2015
Staff at Sheffield-based President Engineering Group Ltd (PEGL) have been busy baking pies and raising funds for St Luke's Hospice as part of the exciting Great Sheffield Pie Month.
The team at PEGL raised £200 for the hospice after staff baked a mouth-watering selection of pies including lamb and potato, venison and beef, vegetable, meat and potato, and steak and Guinness. Staff also served up Cornish pasties and minced beef pasties. There was also a succulent selection of sweet desserts too including apple pie and custard! St Luke's Hospice's Great Sheffield Pie Month aims to raise the £5.6 million it needs this year to carry on caring for patients, their families and friends through a range of fundraising activities, including the Great Sheffield Pie Month. This is the third time President Engineering Group has taken part in the Pie and Peas Event, raising nearly £700 for St Luke's Hospice over the past three years. Marie Cooper, finance director at President Engineering Group, said: -We always have a great time when we host a pie and pea day as our staff just put in so much effort! We have some amazing cooks here and it makes it a really fun day, whilst helping St Luke's Hospice to continue their amazing work. St Luke's Hospice is a charity which provides specialist care to more than 5,000 patients and their loved ones ever year, completely free of charge.
