The UK Pie Party travel with volunteers to festivals and fairs taking pies in the face to raise money for cancer charities. Party leader Nicky Vere-Compton recently visited both Lincolnshire and Essex, on both occasions choosing to support CLIC Sargent.
Nicky attended the National Armed Forces Day at Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire and a family fun day organised by the Museum of Power in Maldon, Essex.
She said: “Our Pie Party manifesto is simple, raise money! Throw a Pie! Beat cancer!
“We had great fun over the weekend, making children laugh by taking pies in the face for CLIC Sargent.
“We want to make as many children laugh as possible and use the money we make from the laughter to make a difference to children and young people with cancer.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Karen Roberts said: “What a fantastic way to raise funds and I am delighted that they raised £255 which really will help make a difference to the lives of children and young people with cancer.
“£230 could pay for a family to stay in a CLIC Sargent Home from Home where we provide free self-catering accommodation near to specialist treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family’s own home.
“Staying in a Home from Home ensures a family can be close to their child during treatment and if they are well enough the child or young person can stay there too.
“You can see from the photos that they are all having fun whilst at the same time helping to make a difference.”
