Pledges will only be charged if the project hits its funding goal of £22,347 by 01 Jul 2019

We have scaled back our original campaign and have been applying for grants. Your pledges will only be collected once we have all the funding in place. We'll keep you updated. Thanks for your support! We are not just a bakery! We bake with communities of all kinds as a way of delivering training & opportunities for people. We know that when people have access to employability skills & are valued as a creative part of a community, we all benefit. We have a community bakery currently operating from a small rented kitchen in Shieldfield, Newcastle and we need more space to grow. We have finalised Heads of Terms for a 10 year lease from the council for a new bakery premises also in Shieldfield. The new premises have been empty for some years and was formerly a supermarket. The interior of the building needs some refurbishment to become a bakery.

What we'll deliver:

  • Replace suspended ceiling and line walls
  • Install plumbing and water heating
  • Install fire alarm and security system
  • Work with the community to tile walls

Why it's a great idea:

All our breads are a fair price & made from simple ingredients with organic flours. We work in innovative ways to keep money & other value in our local economy & protect our environment. We have over five years experience using food and baking as a means to bring diverse communities together, develop agency within communities, create pathways to employment and make healthy food affordable and available to all. Shieldfield used to have a bakery and we want to bring one back which will serve both the local community and other communities across Tyneside and beyond.

Steps to get it done:

  • Refurbish premises
  • Install baking equipment
