Read how we Baked a Difference in the community!

By | news | No Comments

Baking a Difference has been a fantastic community bread project to bad-report-covercreate and deliver in collaboration with Learning for the Fourth Age (L4A).

Over several months Planet Leicester Bakers, with L4A’s staff and volunteers, delivered 12 sessions in 3 very different residential settings for older people: a care home, nursing home and sheltered housing.

We are now delighted to share our full end of pilot project review.

We believe there is much potential for extending the project and we will be seeking further funding and opportunities to do so.

For a flavour of the project, watch this one minute video.

Questions and comments are always welcome, so do get in touch.

And if you or your organisation would be interested in collaborating with Planet Leicester Bakers then please start a conversation.

Baking a Difference was funded by the Big Lottery.

Building a Team with Bread

By | news | No Comments

Planet Leicester Bakers recently spent a day with the staff of Community Advice and Law Service, (CALS), using bread to build team strength and relationships.  It was great fun and a first time plunging into dough for them all!  Feedback from staff has been overwhelmingly positive:

” I really enjoyed the session. It was exactly the right mix of fun, practical and information. I think I speak on behalf of the whole team when I say we came away feeling refreshed and ready to take on new challenges! Including bread making at home! “

Local honey in local bread for local people

People who’ve worked with me  over the years probably know how much I value a bit of collaboration.  There is so much to be gained from teaming up in any way possible, big or small, with like-minded folk who share your ambitions.  And especially those working in different areas with different skills who make you look at things a little, well, differently.
