An award-winning team of pie makers are looking ahead to this year’s British Pie Awards by donating money to a charity.
Master baker Phil Turner and his award-winning team at Turner’s Pies are excited to be taking part in the awards — held in British Pie week, and in association with The Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association.
They are set to run from March 2-8 and celebrate the nation’s passion for pies and recognise the pie as one of the icons of British cuisine.
Managing director Phil and his staff have extra special reason to bid for glory this year thanks to a new initiative in place to try to boost fundraising to a children’s charity.
The West Sussex business is donating £1 from every steak and cheddar pie sold in store to Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice — and is following suit with the same donation with the launch of ‘champions pie pack’ available online for home delivery.
Phil, who oversees the company’s four shops, including one in Chichester, said: “We have enjoyed rewarding success at the awards over the years and we are confident that once again we can challenge the very best in the land.
“We have gained a deserved reputation of being one of the best in the business and we have every reason to believe that our pies will once again have the judges talking about just how delicious our pies continue to be.”
