Local charity Bath Food Cycle is set to host a night of live Blues and Folk Music complemented by free canapés for guests and a cake sale this August.
The small but active charity is to host their first ever fundraising event in Bath city centre on 16th August at Market in Sawclose.
Up and coming local musicians will donate their time to the cause playing live folk and blues all evening. Artists set for the event will include Joe Coleman Folk, The Flamenco Thief and Matt Young.
FoodCycle volunteers will prepare free canapes to showcase their surplus food initiatives as well as producing ‘FoodCycled’ cakes for sale.
The charity collect unsold food from Sainsburys and volunteers then cook it up in the community for those in need. Following a successful 2 month pilot in Julian House the project will continue from October in a new venue. Vital funds will cover the cost of project insurance, volunteer training, food staples and equipment.
