A PENRITH-based butchers will be helping warm the homes of elderly people in Cumbria this winter with the sale of a special pie.

Cranstons is 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, by donating 30p from every steak and Eden best ale pie the company sells between Tuesday and the close of business on Saturday, 10th February.

Philip Cranston, owner of Cranstons Butchers, 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.

“We are hoping to raise awareness of this worthy cause and to donate a sizeable chunk of money to this year’s appeal.”
