Win a Rapunzel cake by helping Bishop's Stortford Food Bank as the BID celebrates Christmas
A fairy-tale touch was added to Bishop's Stortford's late-night Christmas shopping event on Thursday (Dec 2).
A cake celebrating South Mill Arts' production of Rapunzel was created by Karen Burton, of Karen's Cakes in Northgate End.
She has turned the long-haired heroine into one of her signature bakes and organised a competition to raise money for Bishop's Stortford Food Bank.
For the chance to win your very own Rapunzel cake, simply use the QR code on posters displayed around the town to access the Bishop's Stortford BID's website and answer a simple question. Locations include the Indie's window at 12 North Street, where Rapunzel is currently the centrepiece of South Mill Art's display promoting the show, which opens on Saturday (Dec 4).
There is no charge to enter the competition, but Karen, who chairs the BID, said: "We'd love to share the joy this Christmas and would ask in return you make a donation to the Bishop's Stortford Food Bank to help other families if you are able to. Let's all have a great Christmas."
The competition closes on Friday December 17 at 5pm. One winner will be drawn randomly from all the correct entries and must collect their prize from Karen's Cakes on an agreed date before Christmas. Karen will be creating a fresh, new cake for the winner; no alternative can be offered.
The Rapunzel cake was just one of the attractions organised by the BID to celebrate the late-night shopping event.
There was free face painting in Jackson Square from 2pm to 5pm along with a pop-up Little Arts Workshop for youngsters.
At the BID's stall in Jackson Square, the team gave away cotton tote bags, 10 of which contained a £50 Discover Stortford card. There were also sweet treat bags from Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe, cupcakes from Karen's Cakes and Dorringtons mince pies.
Father Christmas was in his grotto in Jackson Square as part of Home Instead Senior Care's Be a Santa to a Senior event. The BID's BRICKLIVE Christmas trail is also up and running.
