This year they hope to judge 7 competitions at the event with the public able to view all of entries (Entrance will be by donation only).

Fay Millar, Managing Director of Gingerbread World has worked with Safe in Sussex since the beginning and said: “It’s great to be working with Safe in Sussex for the 5th year in a row. We are privileged and honoured to be producing their gingerbread kits.

“Gingerbread is so much fun and it is a good chance for everyone to get creative whilst doing something worthwhile and raising money for charity too. We are very proud to support Safe in Sussex because they are a wonderful charity doing a very worthwhile and needed job helping people affected by domestic abuse. We look forward to seeing what people come up with this year.”
