Paddy Pie Power Whips up a Market Treat for Charity

Cheque presentation

Pie lovers have raised more than £1,000 for charity on Bury Market thanks to a specially created delicacy.

Peter Whipp and Emma Scott of Whippy's Pies teamed up with Key 103's Paddy McGuiness to create a 'Paddy Pie' which was sold on the stall to raise funds for Cash For Kids.

The pie, tasted and approved live on air by Paddy himself, is a hunter's chicken pie with chicken, ham, barbecue sauce, and topped with cheese.

Peter Whipp, the pie's creator, said: "We've had a fantastic response from our customers for the Paddy Pie, and we've raised £1,060 for Cash For Kids, which is wonderful. We're still selling the pie, so anyone who fancies a tasty treat and wants to help a good cause should visit my stall on Margaret Block 12 every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday."

Peter and Emma are now working with Bury Market managers to organise a charity day on Saturday 15 April when the beneficiaries will be Cash for Kids and Bury Hospice.
