The Duke of Cambridge is helping the homeless with a brilliant pop-up bakery that the public are invited to get involved in.
If you’re expecting to turn up and see Prince William, however, you might be surprised as The Duke of Cambridge is actually a boozer in London’s trendy Islington.
The pub is doing all they can for rough sleepers in the run-up to Christmas, by raising cash in exchange for delicious goods, namely their infamous potato-sourdough hybrid loaf.
So, if you’re in the capital, have a couple of quid to spare, and want to donate to charity, take a trip to the venue this Friday between 11am and 4pm to join in.
All you need to do is turn up and make a purchase, with all proceeds going to StreetSmart.
The organisation usually tackles homelessness by adding £1 to participating restaurant bills and then distributing those funds to homeless charities. Yet, sadly with Covid, they are unable to operate at the moment due to the hospitality sector closing during lockdown number two.
On their quest to help, The Duke will be flogging the star of the show, aka ‘ the big loaf’ (all 1kg of it), for a fiver, alongside a smaller loaf for £2.50 and sweet spiced saffron buns for £1 each.
For those with a sweet-tooth, there will be jam and preserve options too for £2.50, including mango chutney and green mandarin marmalade.
The event is a real team effort, with different companies donating flour and fruit and veg to help the cause. Notably, Shipton Mill, who make a wide range of organic flour, and Natoora, who source seasonal and sustainable produce to protect the land from soil depletion.
Thanks to head chef Peter working his magic to create the treats, the bar has been hosting bake sales every Friday this month, with the last one taking place on November 27.
So, if there’s one thing you do this week, stop by The Duke to throw some support their way.
During quarantine, the pub also took the initiative to sell their classic roast dinners as takeaway food, with salivating meat and vegan options for up to four people.
