Peter’s ‘Slice of the Pie’ Community Fund re-opens
Following the success of last year’s initiative which saw groups, charities and schools from across South Wales receive vital funding, Peter’s is giving local communities another chance to apply for a ‘Slice of the Pie’.
It can be tough earning a crust while trying to fundraise for clubs close to your heart, which is why Wales’ favourite pie maker has pledged to make donations up to the value of £1,000 to deserving groups, sports teams and schools across South Wales.
If your group or club’s hopes of new kit or equipment has, until now, seemed like pie in the sky, then apply for a slice of funding via Peter’s ‘Slice of the Pie’ website, telling them how much you would like to apply for and exactly what the donation will be spent on.
Last year, Peter’s managed to give several organisations a much-needed helping hand including a local primary school, a community choir group, a performing arts group and a referee society.
Clare Morgan, Marketing Director at the Caerphilly-based food giant said: “We were really pleased with the amount of people that we were able to help last year and we are now looking to support more worthy causes.
“Whether you are in need of new kit for your team, painting and decorating materials for your community hall or gardening gear for your school, please get in touch as Peter’s is keen to help out.”
Pam Williams, director of Aberdare-based Showcase Performing Arts, who were given funding for personalised t-shirts, said: “We were delighted with the funding we received from Peter’s, we felt far more professional while performing and fundraising with our new look.
“As a charity we rely heavily on donations such as lottery funding and community grants and do not have the budget to provide our performers with a professional looking uniform so the donation from Peter’s was a great help.”
The deadline for applications is Friday 5th December and winning teams / clubs must be willing to participate in publicity activity. The online ‘Slice of the Pie’ application form is available to complete here: www.petersfood.co.uk/sliceofthepie
