Ross from Catalyst Vinyard Church UK contacted me asking if we had 150-200 gingerbread houses in stock. We didn’t have anywhere near that amount in store so I enlisted the help of our bakery team to try order them in. Obviously these are like hot cakes at the moment but we managed to get 107 gingerbread houses in ready for Ross and we donated 20 of these from the store.
The houses are going to children in families who've been using the foodbank during the year. For a bit of festive cheer they wanted to hold a little competition to decorate a house, but with money tight these families wouldn’t be able to take part, so by providing the kids with a set they can all take part.
