Free mince pies for shoppers

Have your say

MORE than 6,000 free mince pies were handed out on the streets of Sheffield over Christmas.

Volunteers from Sheffield Cathedral and churches across the city gave the festive treats away, along with a card saying ‘Love Sheffield’.

The aim was to bring a smile to the faces of shoppers and to spread the word that ‘God loves them and God loves Sheffield’.

The Reverend Canon Chris Burke, of Sheffield Cathedral, said: “We realised we could work together to bless our city.”
