Safe in Sussex’s Gingerbread House Fun is Back – Now Bigger than Ever!

Sep 22, 2021 | News

This will be the 4th year of having gingerbread house fun. After the amazing success of selling 613 houses last year, Safe in Sussex wants to take the event to another dimension.

They are adding 3 more competitions and hosting a public Gingerbread House Event to show as many of the houses off as possible!

The event will be on Saturday 11th December at St Oscar Romero Catholic School in Goring-by-Sea; there will be 3 competitions being judged at the event.

One will be an adult and children’s Gingerbread House Decorating Competition (packs will have been pre-ordered and decorated by the event) and another a Freestyle Gingerbread House Decorating Competition for anyone who makes their own gingerbread house creations from scratch every year and would like a chance to show it off.

Finally, our main signature event, the business/community groups Gingerbread House Competition, is back for the 4th year, but this event will be held on Friday 10th December at 12 noon on Zoom. However, we hope that as many business entries as possible will be on show at the event on the Saturday.

All the competitions will be judged on Imagination, Inspiration & Appearance.

Debbie West one of the Corporate & Community Fundraisers for Safe in Sussex said “It’s so exciting that we have a public event planned this year for the Gingerbread House Fun. We are delighted and thankful that our event is growing each year with many more people getting involved and helping raise much needed funds and awareness of the vital work Safe in Sussex does to end domestic abuse in our community.”

Safe In Sussex receives 14% of its funding from the government. The rest is through grants, fundraising events, donations, legacies and corporate sponsorship.

Demand for our services grows every year and finding the money to fund our vital services gets tougher all the time.

We are fortunate to receive some grant funding from Children in Need, the National Lottery and local authority organisations, but we are constantly looking for new ways to attract funding.
