This Christmas, we want to give our loyal
crumpet lovers something extra special! We invite you to slip your feet into
our brand new, fluffy, cosy CHRISTMAS CRUMPET slippers for a toasty feet

the slippers (excluding delivery) will be donated to FareShare, the UK's largest charity fighting hunger and food waste.

equivalent of 64 meals will be donated to those most in need during this
festive period; in total, the proceeds from the campaign will enable FareShare
to distribute over 85,000 free meals.
items are priced at £19.99 (incl. delivery), and are available in sizes XS-L,
spanning shoe sizes 3-12.
