Holland’s Pies makes charitable Christmas gesture

Holland’s Pies will donate 100 pies to Manchester charity The Booth Centre to help feed the homeless this Christmas.

The Booth Centre is a day-care centre for the homeless, which offers activities, advice and support for those on the streets. It opened in 1995 and was based in Manchester Cathedral, before moving to its current home at Edward Holt House on Pimblett Street.

Amanda Croome, Booth Centre CEO, said: “We are very thankful to Holland’s for providing the centre with pies this Christmas. It will be an extra meal for those who visit us over Christmas.”

David Girdler, spokesperson for Holland’s, said, “Booth Centre do a fantastic job in and around Manchester. We wanted to be able to help in their efforts and give a little something to those who are in a less fortunate position. We hope the pies donated to the centre will provide someone with a warm meal this Christmas.”
