A surprise donation!

Last week we got a surprising email into the inbox – completely and totally lovely – but surprising. So much so we wanted to express our thanks on the internet for the world to see!

The Triangle in Glasgow held their very own Banavie Bake Off on 2nd October. It sounded like an absolutely wonderful day with loads of really great baking-themed activities; there was a biscuit decorating workshop where the children decorated the biscuits and then hung them on a small tree!

They also held a brioche dough workshop, run by Stephen Skrynka as well as a variety of cakes and bread brought by people! This event was run in aid of two causes, of which we were one. I can’t describe how heart-warming it was to receive an email saying that the fantastic people at The Triangle had raised this money for us and we are so grateful for the support. The other organisation was Glasgow’s Asylum Destitution Action Network, which is a network dedicated to improving, broadening and communicating help available to asylum seekers – check them out! 

Margaret Anne, who goes by M.A., said, “We chose Freedom Bakery because it seems like a really good project, it is local, and its baking. We like your bread too! We also chose Glasgow Destitute Asylum Seeker Night Shelter because some of us do cooking there.”


To all the people at the Triangle thank you so much. We hope you enjoyed your day and thank you for the donation and the wonderful photos!
