An article appeared on page 15 of 2nd August edition of Southwark News, highlighting Bede’s Annual Baking Day. Food correspondent and former Bede Youth Club member from the 1960s Michael Holland, judged our Learning Disabilities Project’s event last week and he was left impressed not only by the quality of the items baked e.g. French bread, cheesey scones and cup cakes, but also by the dedication of the carers and staff that made it all happen. Michael found the experience humbling and inspiring.
This year we were fortunate to be invited back to host the event we did for the first time last September at Lambeth Palace Gardens. Details are as follows:
- 12-3pm, Friday 3rd August, Lambeth Palace, SE1 7JU – Pay on the door: Adults £5, Children Free
