Santa’s clearly the reigning champ when it comes to eating mince pies – he gets through millions on Christmas Eve alone, for goodness sake! But anyone who reckons they might come a close second can demonstrate their prodigious pastry partaking prowess at the Man vs Santa contest. This charity challenge at The Hand in Hand pub asks participants to put away as many mince pies as they can in just three minutes. As well as a place on the pub’s wall of fame and eternal gorging glory, the winner will be given 60 seconds behind the bar to pull as much draught as they can plus a local brewery tour to enjoy with five friends. The proceeds go to Merton Mencap and everyone who takes part gets a Santa hat. Bring your own indigestion remedies. By Stephanie Hartman
