GINGERBREAD BISCUITS – A RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS

By March 23, 2020No Comments

As many of you will know, our multi award-winning gingerbread sock biscuit campaign, now in its 9th year, is our biggest single annual fundraiser, seeing some sixty thousand+ biscuits sold through schools, businesses & homes across Cheshire. But of course, the current very challenging situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak has meant the vast majority of this year’s biscuits will not be sold. However, we absolutely will not let these delicious biscuits go to waste and have decided, where possible, to donate all of the surplus stock to those wonderful NHS key worker staff who remain on the front line of the battle with this pandemic and who will hopefully appreciate a little bit of gingerbread loveliness to help them through this most uncertain of times. Of course, if you have already held your sock biscuit sale and are ready to pass on the proceeds to us then we are still here to collect it! At this time, a cheque or BACS transfer would be preferable to cash but if you do have cash then please contact us at schools@cdssgroup.org.uk for further guidance.

Thank you all for your continued support, and please stay safe…and together!
