Freedom Bakery crowdfunding for second site

first_imgIn response to “growing demand”, Freedom Bakery will launch a second crowdfunding campaign on 7 April. Freedom Bakery is a Glasgow-based social enterprise that gives training and employment to recently released ex-offenders.Artisan breads and cakes are being baked and sold to the public by a group of prisoners at HMP Low Moss, near Bishopbriggs. This follows similar schemes in London and Italy, whereby offenders bake and create pastries during their sentence.Matt Fountain, a self-taught baker, launched the initiative in an attempt to offer inmates employment, after finding himself disheartened by the high levels of reoffending in Scotland – the reconviction rate there is 64%. Due to “growing demand”, there are now plans afoot for a second bakery in the city.More opportunitiesFreedom said: “We need to establish a second bakery in Glasgow, so that we can provide more opportunities for the people we’re working with, ultimately with short-term employment opportunities as they leave prison.“It will also allow us to trade more broadly, meeting increasing demand so that we can reinvest our profits back into the people we were established for. The plans for our new bakery mean we will be able to engage with more groups in society, provide classes for the public and increase our service in the community.”The group aims to raise £15,000 towards the creation of the second bakery. And it said there would be “exciting rewards” for those who contribute.last_img read more

At the beginning of the year, Jurgen Klopp was successful with his effort to bring Takumi Minamino to Anfield, which proved to be his only piece of business. However, according to France Football, the Merseyside giants attempted to make another addition to the final third last month. The report claimed that the Premier League giants were willing to part with £30m in order to sign Chukwueze, who has contributed three goals from 22 La Liga appearances this season. Despite his lack of return during the current campaign, Villarreal turned down the bid for a player who is said to have £55 million release clause. The 20-year-old has also received interest from Chelsea and is reported to have a £55 million release clause in his current contract that expires in 2023.Tags: Jurgen KloppLa LigaSamuel ChukwuezeVillareallast_img read more
