We had a great month in March - we launched our Kindness Cookie - appeared on TV and posted lots of stottie cakes across the UK amongst our daily work. March saw us working together with the local school to provide free baking sessions to tie in with the curriculum making Roman bread. This month also concluded our 6 month Shieldfield Weaving project with local artists in residence to the bakery and supported by Newcastle Council. This was a great success and saw many members of the community getting together to learn new skills and form new friendships. A Massive Thank You to everyone who supported us by visiting the bakery, attending a course, ordering on-line stotties and merchandise, donating directly or suggesting someone to be the recipient of our weekly Kindness Cookie. Your support makes a HUGE difference.
We even appeared on GMTV as part of the Warm Hub initiative - never a dull moment
