Countdown to Safe in Sussex’s Gingerbread House Fun – Get involved
It’s only 11 weeks till Safe in Sussex’s 2nd Gingerbread House Decorating Competition for local businesses and groups. The event is held on the 12th December, (Gingerbread Day) each year (as long as it falls on a weekday!).
Last year was a great success where local companies came together for team bonding and festive fun whilst increasing awareness and funds for the charity.
'We are pleased to confirm the maker of the gingerbread house packs and the Judge of the competition will be Fay Millar, owner of Brighton Cakes. again and she said ”I am honoured to be chosen to supply the Gingerbread packs and judge this great competition again this year. I loved doing it last year and seeing how creative people can be”.
AM Trophies, Worthing last year donated an amazing trophy for Safe in Sussex to give to the winners each year. The winner last year was Rayner IOL based in Worthing so they were the first name to go on the trophy.
All the gingerbread houses will be given to the women and children at the refuges for Christmas.
If you want to put your name down to join in the festive fun this year, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. So far this year we have confirmed Raynor IOL, Inside Worthing, Nutley’s Kitchen Gardens, Janet Webb Consulting, Coop Field Place, The Focus Group, Expert Virtual Assistance, CommPoint and Nadarra Cosmetics.
Safe in Sussex offers advice, support, refuge, awareness and education for women, children and young people across West Sussex. The charity has confidential refuges and a community refuge in Littlehampton.
The refuges are for women and children who flee domestic violence. The refuges are a place where women can feel safe and be given the vital support they need, both practical and emotional.
Here at Safe in Sussex we aim to increase the awareness and stop the cycle of domestic abuse in West Sussex.
We also have a Countrywide Outreach service for men and women, we facilitate support groups for women in the community and we provide healthy relationship education programmes for Primary and Secondary schools in West Sussex.
