Once you show us the full card, you can redeem a free vegan treat of your choosing.* We're also offering free recipe cards, including some from our chefs, as well as costing them and including nutritional info such as calories, protein and notable vitamins and minerals.

Christmas Raffle in aid of Manchester Mind
Eighth Day Christmas Raffle in aid of Manchester Mind.
This year we will be running a raffle over the run up to Christmas in aid of Manchester Mind, an independent, mental health charity based in the local area. Manchester Mind have been delivering mental health services within the city since 1989 (under the name HARP for some years) and became one of 137 Local Mind Associations affiliated to the national Charity Mind in 2011. Today they are still an independent charity, governed by their own board of trustees and deliver a wide range of services, such as training, peer support, advice, food projects as well as many other services to support the mental health and wellbeing of Manchester's population.
The raffle will be run from the 6th of December until the 17th of December and each ticket will cost £1, there is a grand prize of a Hamper full of goodies as well as a couple of runner up prizes. We'll pick our prize winners by close of business on Wednesday the 17th and notify the winners the same day.
