Pie-ping Hot Support For Winter Warmth Appeal

Cranstons Quality Butchers are warming the homes of older people in Cumbria this winter with the sale of a very special pie.


We are supporting Cumbria Community Foundation’s Winter Warmth Appeal, which helps older people who are having to choose between eating a meal or heating their homes. We will donate 30 pence from every Small Steak and Eden Best Ale pie we sell from Tuesday 2nd January to close of business on Saturday 10th February.

Look out for the blue ticket in our counters! 

Philip Cranston, Managing Director of Cranstons, said: "We are delighted to be helping to raise funds for the Winter Warmth Appeal, which helps some of the county’s most vulnerable elderly people with their fuel costs.

"Our steak and ale pies are a popular choice at this time of year; what’s not to love about a rich steak, ale and puff pastry topped pie? It’s the ultimate winter comfort food! We are hoping to raise awareness of this worthy cause and to donate a sizeable chunk of money to this year’s appeal."


Andy Beeforth, Chief Executive at Cumbria Community Foundation, said: "Older people are more ill in the winter, and it's very important for them to stay warm so that existing conditions are not exacerbated. When you're older you don’t cope with cold as well.

“We know that demand for help is greater than ever before, so we are very excited that Cranston’s are helping to raise much-needed funds and promote our Winter Warmth Campaign this year.”
