Barry charity set to bloom thanks to Pete’s Slice of the Pie
A Barry based learning disabilities charity are set to benefit from Peter’s Slice of the Pie Community Fund.
Vale Plus, a charity providing lifelong learning and leisure opportunities for people with a learning disability, have been donated brand new gardening equipment for the centre by Wales’ premier pie-maker.
The tools will be used to grow produce to cook and sell in their café and shop.
The charity won the prize after completing the Peter’s Food online application form with a strong bid for funding.
Vale Plus Manager Steve Thomas said: “We are delighted with the funding from Peter’s Food, and are excited to introduce new gardening activities to our members.
“We have over 100 attendees from all over the Vale and Cardiff and donations are vital to ensure we can keep activities fun and interesting for every single one of our members.
“Our members take great pride in the garden and these tools will allow us to look after the area and make it a better place to work in.
“We also provide a number of certificated courses in Horticulture and these resources will allow us to improve the skills base of our members.
“We would like to thank Peter’s Food for their Slice of the Pie and this brilliant prize; we look forward to showing off all of our new produce.”
Clare Morgan, Marketing Director at the Caerphilly-based food giant said: “Peter’s has gone from strength to strength since the early days as a small South Wales pie manufacturer, and we are thrilled to be able to support the local communities that have always supported us.
“Vale Plus is a fantastic charity and we are proud to award them the crucial funding that they desired.”
