Carringtons Catering is nice as pie this St George’s Day with charity culinary offering
Carringtons Catering celebrated St George’s Day (April 23) with a charitable culinary offering.
Created by Director and Master Chef of Great Britain Darren Wynn, the Roby Mill based firm donated a giant commemorative pie to Epsom Street Community Centre in Vauxhall, which is managed by Nugent Care.
Having been appointed as one of the approved caterers of St George’s Hall in the early 1990’s, the aptly named pie will pay homage to the iconic Liverpool landmark’s rich culture and heritage.
Darren said: “As an approved caterer of Liverpool’s renowned St George’s Hall, we wanted to do something truly special to mark the annual occasion by giving something back to the community through our chosen charity, Nugent Care. St George’s Day is a great chance to celebrate our heritage and where better to unveil our pie than at St George’s Hall itself.
“The giant pie will be made up of classic English ingredients such as salmon, haddock and king prawn to name a few. We certainly hope that all those at Epsom Street Community Centre will enjoy the hearty nostalgic flavours.”

Director Helen Wynn added: “Here at Carringtons Catering we are extremely passionate about giving something back, which is why our team regularly participates in innovative fundraising activities. In the summer of 2015, we named Nugent Care as our chosen charity of the year for the second time consecutively. As we endeavour to offer our support wherever we can, we recently donated a number of pans of Scouse to Epsom Street Community Centre for Global Scouse Day.
“I myself chair the board of directors for Nugent Social Enterprises CIC, which has opened a social enterprise café, The Courtyard, to help local people with disabilities gain skills for the workplace. It’s certainly rewarding to use our culinary skills for the good of the community.”
General Manager of St George’s Hall Alan Smith said: “St George’s Hall is delighted to continue to celebrate St George’s Day having had the hall reopened on St George’s Day in 2007 by HRH Prince Charles. The themed St George’s pie adds another fantastic dimension to the halls celebrations, which also include a series of Shakespearean plays and performances.”
