Hot Cross Bun Giveaway

Hot Cross Bun Giveaway

Some of our champion team had planned to be out and about around Leeds, York and Sheffield this week, handing out free packs of our Hot Cross Buns.
Given the current situation, this isn’t possible but we don’t want our buns to go to waste!

So, we’re running a competition on our Instagram and Facebook pages. We’ll pop a pack in the post to the first 10 people with a Leeds, York or Sheffield postcode to comment below with “I love hot cross buns!” – (please DON’T post your postcode here in the comments, winners will be privately messaged for addresses).

Whether you’d like your buns to go to loved ones in vulnerable categories, to friends self-isolating or yourself because you just need a comforting Hot Cross Bun to have with a cuppa, we thought now is a good time to give some Yorkshire love! 💜
