Christmas Challenge

Mince pies xmas challenge

Hap-pie Christmas Challenge

Can you use your mince pie making skills to raise money for National Star’s Building a Brighter Future Appeal?

Cake sales in schools, colleagues selling goodies at work, neighbours gathering for mulled wine and mince pies, hot chocolate and mince pies sold at the end of driveways… we’ve got a good filling about this!

Not really a mince pie lover? It’s OK, you can still bake the world a better place by selling any cakes. Baking not your strong point? Buy in some treats to sell. It’s not cheating, honest.

National Star student Shannon will be judging a photo competition – including the best and worst looking pies, best pie eating photo and the most unusual pie.

This year, the money you raise will go towards our Building a Brighter Future Appeal which aims to raise the final £1.5m needed to build a new student residence at Ullenwood by summer 2023. Your support will provide the right specialist accommodation that will enable them to progress, grow and flourish.

Keen to get baking on our behalf? Make the most of these handy downloadable posters to promote your event!
