Companions Real Bread CIC are on a mission to bake great bread and to provide valuable work experience to ex-offenders. The community interest company announced recently that they will be moving into the former Delices bakery at the Art Centre on Howard Street. This will enable them to bake more bread and satisfy more hungry customers.

The charity quiz night at Fay’s at Riverside Tennis Club on Saturday 2 February will raise funds to allow Companions to buy a bread slicer.  Said Charlie Fay, owner of Fay’s: “We sell Companions’ bread on a weekly basis, love what they do and want to support them and help them however we can. Come and join us!”

Teams can be made of up to six people and tickets are £3 per person.  The quiz starts at 7pm and there will be food available on the evening as well as a bar and a raffle with lots of prizes from other local businesses.

Enter your team by emailing faysatriverside@gmail.com or popping into the coffee shop.
