Xero love supporting small projects with big ambitions and believe that even the smallest projects can make a big difference.
Each month Xero will choose a project to be their ‘Beautiful Project of the Month’, a project which stands out both as an inspiring story and one which has successfully gathered lots of support of their crowd.
And March’s winner is.. Luminary Bakery!
Luminary Bakery is a fantastic social enterprise in East London, offering opportunities for women from vulnerable backgrounds to build a future for themselves and their families, all through the power of baking!
These lovely ladies use baking as a tool to take women on a journey to employability and entrepreneurship, equipping them with practical and transferrable skills for the working world.
Throughout their campaign, Luminary Bakery:
- raised £16,387
- gathered pledges from 263 backers
- had articles in Time Out and The Huffington Post
- were featured in Glamour magazine’s International Women’s day celebration
- And even inspired a visit from our MD, Phil Geraghty!
