Conference Treats and Corporate Gifts to Stimulate Meetings of Minds
Recent studies show ginger helps to reduce anxiety and improve state-of-mind by binding with serotonin receptors in the human brain. As well as having antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumour properties, ginger is both soothing and stimulating.
What better to get people thinking, talking and listening?
at your meeting or conference
Make your business event as moreish as Sarah Nelson's Celebrated Grasmere Gingerbread® by treating your delegates or clients to a piece or two to nibble as they work, a reward to take home and relish, or a welcome gift to get ideas sparking.
The delectable mix of chewy spicy centre and crumbly crust make a sublime substitute for the predictable tea and coffee break biscuits, and after-dinner confectionery.
All our gingerbread is baked fresh daily on site, and can be made to order as required.
Combined with the evocative scent, taste and texture of Grasmere Gingerbread, the special qualities of our ingredients will ensure a memorable and meaningful special event.
Let us help make your event one to savour!

Let our heritage support your message - make an original impression with Sarah Nelson's Original Celebrated Grasmere Gingerbread®
We have supplied our famous gingerbread to corporate events large and small, local and international, and brought our unique flavour into the mix. Here are a selection of testimonials from recent clients:
'I would like to reiterate my thanks to you (and your staff) for generously providing the tins of Gingerbread, which formed the centerpiece in the goodie bags for my European guests and helped to reinforce my key message of quality'.
Richard Greene, Area Development Manager, Cumbria Tourism
'Grasmere Gingerbread was an ideal gift for our guests as we wanted to bring something special from our home in the North to our London event at Mansion House. The help and service from the staff was great. It took a lot of the pressure off me and my husband as they delivered straight to the Mansion House. The quality of the gingerbread was important to us and we loved the tin as a momento of the occasion.'
Mrs. Angela Waddingham, The Worshipful Company of Actuaries Charter Banquet, Mansion House, London, April 2010
'Giving a presentation gift on the last day of the Comenius Exchange of 2010 for The Queen Katherine School Kendal to the other ten countries' international delegates at the last meeting at Kardla School on Hiiummaa Island, Estonia was the perfect way to take a taste of The Lakes to our friends abroad. We wanted to give them a taste of Cumbria and Cumbrian tradition and share with them something special to remember the event. We decided that Sarah Nelson's Original Grasmere Gingerbread was just the thing. During the last formal meeting, the gingerbread was given to the delegates who were unsure about what sort of 'bread' they were being given. However, removing the delightful wrappers, they soon tucked in and enjoyed the taste of something different. The gingerbread tasting session was fun and left them having some special memories - as well as some left over - to take home with them'.
Jane Henderson, Queen Katherine School, Kendal
'Grasmere Gingerbread was a great first night gift for our December production, giving a great seasonal feel and showing our appreciation to the Company for all their hard work.'
Chloe Rickard, Kneehigh Theatre Company, Truro
'We, at Morgan's at Windermere were very grateful to The Gingerbread Shop for their wonderful service and delivering our order to us for our 25th Anniversary weekend. I am sure all those taking part in the weekend enjoyed the added bonus of Grasmere Gingerbread, especially as it is local and our participants come from all over'.
Sara Wilson, Fellmog Centre, for Morgan Sports Car Club at Windermere 25th Anniversary
'The Grasmere Gingerbread from Sarah Nelson made an excellent seasonal addition to the goodie bags at our November 5th fundraising dinner for Westminster Cathedral. We received many compliments on the quality of the gingerbread. It was beautifully packaged and a real touch of nostalgia for our guests.'
Christina White, Director of the Friends of Westminster Cathedral
'Being able to give Grasmere Gingerbread to the delegates at our conferences has made a great connection between the Builders Merchant Federation and the Lake District where we have chosen to host our events. Having a local product makes it that bit more special.'
Lynne Mulryan, Builders Merchants Federation
'The special Grasmere Gingerbread people made in the shape of the OAMPS logo created a superb giveaway at the FPS exhibition in Harrogate. The team at the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop worked with us on creating a fun and distinctive way to reinforce the OAMPS/OHES brand, sourcing packaging and coordinating presentation to make a really unique product that looked great, tasted great, and did the job'.
Mark Ramsden, MD, Grafika Ltd., for OAMPS Petrochemical/OHES Environmental at the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers annual exhibition and conference, 2009
