While the pies are usually delicious, this batch was not for consumption (even by hungry students, for those who suggested it!) but we feel they were used in a fun way to make people think about mathematics – perhaps some people who would not otherwise take an interest… To mark Pi Day we instead donated £314 to a local charity which helps feed people in crisis.

If you’d like to make a donation, here are some suggestions:

Matt is a supporter of Depaul UK, helping young homless people. You can donate through their website: http://www.depauluk.org/

Numberphile’s donation was to a local group which does not have online donation facilities.

However here are some other options…

Numberphile also raises money for cancer research if you’d prefer – donate here: http://www.justgiving.com/numberphile-charity

Special thanks to Pukka Pies (for the pies), Notts Country FC (for hosting us) and the football channel Copa90 (for helping us out) – http://www.youtube.com/user/Copa90football – plus James Hennessy for being second camera!
