Pyney’s Pie Day is back in 2023 with a big goal to raise $100,000! If you love to bake pies, eat pies or just be in it for a good cause, then block the date out in the calendar and join us for a good old Aussie Pie on Saturday, August 5th, 2023 at any of our participating bakeries.
Australia is renowned for making the best pies across the land. Here are some of the epic pies we have tried this year so far. We would love to hear your review of your Pie Day pie too!
All funds raised from the 2022 Pyney’s Pie Day will go to support the learning and expansion of trainees of the Compass Institute.
The Compass Institute Inc. is an award-winning Sunshine Coast based ‘For Purpose’ organisation, dedicated to providing support for people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities.
At Compass, we believe in the extraordinary potential of human beings and are driven to create a world where EVERYONE can have the opportunity to create the life of their choice.
All funds will be used to extend the learning opportunities across different campuses and social enterprises through the purchasing of needed resources and development of key infrastructure. We currently have a list of projects and requirements that we are hoping to fund through this initiative that will help our trainees experience more of the world around them.
* Development of weatherproof infrastructure at our Compass Farm to enable our trainees to be able to extend their capabilities and learning no matter the day
* Revitalisation of key educational spaces that are in need of upgrades to support the continued delivery of best practice learning and development programs
*Development of additional amenities to support a growing number of trainees and staff on key campuses
* Extension of new learning programs including for example across cooking, woodwork and creative arts, which also provide opportunities for products created through these spaces to be sold to the community, with income distributed back into learning and development programs
We are dedicated to extending our abilities to diversify the daily experiences of all trainees so that just like you and me they have a pathway to make a meaningful contribution in their world and have a strong sense of pride.
Together we can ensure that everyone has an opportunity for optimal living and learning.
