Mr Kipling and The Salvation Army bring festive spirit and free cake to the British people

This Christmas, Mr. Kipling will be bringing a spot of seasonal cheer to British commuters with a Christmas Cake-To-Go dispenser located in spots around the UK.

The dispensers will be located in 20 spots in towns and cities across the country, launching on the 10th December, and will be dispensing free cake at the touch of a button!

As well as free slices of Mr. Kipling Christmas Cake in handy snack pack form, the dispenser will also be scented with a delicious Christmas smell and will play a specially recorded version of ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ by The Salvation Army.

All those who want to do a good deed at Christmas need look no further, as The Salvation Army receives a donation for every slice of cake dispensed.  

The campaign is being supported by king of panto, Christopher Biggins, who said: “I really love Christmas, and I think it’s so important to be bringing a real, traditional Christmas to the people of Britain. What could be better, when you’re cold and waiting for the bus home, than a free cake, a Christmas carol, and the smell of Christmas?”

The Salvation Army's Lieutenant- Colonel Marion Drew, said: “Christmas is the time of year when many of us think of giving to those in need. This partnership with Mr. Kipling gives people the opportunity to enjoy a Christmas treat whilst making a donation to The Salvation Army's work supporting vulnerable and marginalised people in our society.”

So make sure you pop down for your helping of Christmas cheer, cake and a good deed!
