With just 10 days left to reach £15,000 for our new premises in Stoke Newington, it’s full steam ahead for the everyone at the bakery. For several weeks now, the Luminary team has been fully committed to spreading the word about our crowdfunding goal and collecting pledges from anyone willing to donate to our cause. As a thank you for the kind generosity, we are offering rewards to our pledgers according to what they give. Such rewards include free baked goods for pledging £10 or more, high tea for 2 for pledging £50, bread-making master classes for £75 and so much more.
Our incredible kick starter film, featured on our website homepage, was created specifically to show potential pledgers an inside look at Luminary life, shared stories from some of the women who have been part of the course, and a sneak peak at the new premises and its guaranteed ability to empower twice the number of women we can now. Beautifully enlightening, this video gives a wonderful insight into the powerful foundation of the bakery and what the world can expect in months to come.

Last Tuesday was International Women’s Day and as an amazing gift to all of us, Time Out chose to feature Luminary Bakery in their weekly magazine as well as construct an online article to deeper inform readers about what we do as a social enterprise as well as our current fundraiser for Stoke Newington. Fortunately, this blessing helped boost our efforts to reach out to others and gain pledgers. As an ever-expanding organization, we are extremely grateful for the opportunity to be promoted by such a prominent magazine.
Having raised just over £8000 as of today, we still have a significant amount to raise by March 22nd. Please continue to share our video or visit our homepage for more information about the story and impact of Luminary Bakery. Together we can make this dream a reality. Thank you.
