From mince pies and Christmas cakes to family favourites, we have been supporting local communities over the festive period through product donations.

We donated more than 50,000 baked goods to charities and organisations across the country, including a number of local charities in Yorkshire and Lancashire.

North West Ambulance Service, Blackburn Food Bank and St Patricks Trust are just some of the organisations which received a donation. Blackburn Food Bank received 4,600 products in a bid to help feed our local communities this winter.

As a business, we always strive to support the local community where we can. With last year being particularly challenging for a lot of people, it was even more important for us to give back through donations of the country’s festive favourites.

As well as supporting those close to our bakeries, we have also been supporting Crisis, the national homeless charity, for more than 10 years. Over Christmas, we donated more than 10,000 products for guests of Crisis shelters to enjoy.

We hope that through our donations, we were able to spread a little bit of festive cheer to people across the country.
