Support Nathan, Angie & Riz and help them get back to baking and biking again! 

Nathan was hospitalised by a randomly occurring brain aneurysm on 22nd May. After intensive hospital care and loving support from family & friends he is on the mend and we hope he will be back on the canal and baking again soon. We need to mobilise community support to see Nathan, Angie and Riz through this tough time, cover a months income and get them on their feet again.

Nathan and Angie have been giving to community and enriching our lives with their smiles, sourdough and sunshine energy for years and now they need our help. We pull together in times of need and this is an opportunity to show this beautiful family how much they are cherished and needed in our lives! 


Many years ago, Nathan and Angie moved onto a canal boat and began their dream of baking organic sourdough bread to be delivered to their community on cargo bikes. They've been supplying over 100 regular customers at the Bath Farmers Market and providing weekly bread to Harvest Wholefoods and Hartley Farm Shop for years. They are now renowned bakers in Bath and bake the best sourdough around, hand-mixed with love and given with joy. They are the hardest working and most down-to-earth people we know and it is truly tragic that this incident has cast a large cloud over their lives, bringing economic and emotional hardship. 

The Oven bakery are reviving  ancient bread making methods of hand-mixing and water-milled old grain varieties, whilst pioneering sustainable ways to feed people with the best organic ingredients delivered by bike. For more information, see:


We are reaching out for community resilience and togetherness with our friends the bakers - and their young baby and head baker Riz! This fundraiser aims to cover their wages for the forced time off from the bakery,cover costs for temporary accommodation near the hospital and cover health costs to get Nathan back to full strength . Please donate as much as you can, from the cost of a loaf to a weeks wages! Share this now with family, friends and on social media. These sort of unexpected challenges can happen to anyone at any time and we can pool together to model community resilience.

Thanks to everyone for such a fantastic response we reached the target of  £5000 but any more donations will be welcome!

It's going to be a long road to recovery. 

Sending our love to Nathan and his family ! <3
