Boles Bakery started with the intention of just being somewhere for good bakes, but the pandemic has shown that many of us are closer to unemployment and poverty than we'd like to be, with the disadvantaged even closer. Throughout the pandemic, we raised funds for local food banks and provided free lunches to children, but recognised there was still a need to do more. With that in mind, we made a change from a limited business to a Community Interest Company.
Boles Bakery C.I.C is a bakery that aims to spread joy with a bit of sugar. We do this by providing Pay-What-You-Can events for communities and organisations. Additionally, we help to generate self-regard, social skills and better career opportunities for people from disadvantaged backgrounds including ethnic minorities, people with long term health conditions or disabilities and/or other socioeconomic barriers to employment by providing skills, training, work experience and/or employment opportunities.
