Our bakers are a friendly bunch! Learn more about why they love being part of Bread Together.
“I feel happy and jolly. It’s therapeutic and rewarding to get the right textures and to meet friends and other people. I’m visually impaired and I get a lot out of bread making.
In my spare time I love walking my dog, Inca, volunteering, and going to pop concerts. I haven’t got a favourite pop group. Plus I enjoy going to Storyhouse to see films and I like playing bowls. Taking part in Bread Together is an achievement. It’s challenging but enjoyable.”
“My name is Sarah and I am 25 years old. I live in a house with some help from my carers. I started bread making as a new skill for my Gold D of E and I have continued doing it. I like bread making as I meet other people and I really enjoy the smell and taste of fresh bread. I love being active. I swim, row, tenpin bowl and play badminton. I have a voluntary job at a community centre and at the hospital cafe.”
“Bread making is great for me as it’s voluntary so we are not under pressure to attend. It’s wonderful to help the guys and see the smiles on their faces. My working life revolved around greeting cards and the happiness they bring. I’m a big sports fan, especially cricket, football and rugby league.”
“I love seeing friends and making new friends and baking bread. I like making everything with us all at Bread Together. Friends Forever! I also love reading, puzzles and spellings, and I love exams and assessments.”
