Baking a Difference: A Grand Finale. And a Bread Bike!

Delivery of the year long Baking a Difference project drew to a wonderful close at Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College. Three young women and a staff member were invited to take part in bread making in the school kitchen. They absolutely loved it!

Project partners Learning for the Fourth Age are always keen to bring in new volunteers to the charity’s work. Giving the young women a taste of bread making was a good way to introduce them to the innovative approaches the charity adopts. Bread making with Planet Leicester Bakers also has the benefit of building confidence and encouraging enjoyment in real food. Comments from the young women certainly attested to that!

2016: A Happy, Bready, Tasty New Year!

So much happened for Planet Leicester Bakers in 2015 that it’s hard to imagine 2016 being even better – but it will be!

Looking back, 2015 was the first full calendar year for the start-up, with tremendously exciting developments.  Securing a place on the Lloyds Bank Programme with the School for Social Entrepreneurs was a major achievement. Coupled with the launch of the flagship ‘Sharing Bread’ community project it made for busy times.

Sharing Bread has been wonderful.  Every group has embraced the sessions with laughter.  We now have over 50 Silver Star Planet Leicester Bakers and 7 Gold Stars from all corners of Leicestershire.
