Bunnies have been Baking a Difference

Bunnies have been the order of the day for Care Home residents in the run up to Easter. Using a lovely French sweet dough from Bath-based baker Richard Bertinet, the residents have shaped balls of dough and dough ropes for outlines. The shape’s structure offers a lovely ‘sharing bread’ for all residents in the homes to enjoy.

Read how we Baked a Difference in the community!

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.
