The Real Bread Campaign is part of Sustain: The alliance for better food and farming.
It is funded by membership fees, donations and charitable grants.
The Campaign is part of the food and farming charity Sustain and relies upon YOUR help to be able to keep going.
The Campaign is part of a charity and two key things from our side are that:
The main new project for which we now need bread is Together We Rise, a new project to help people living with mental health issues, and some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people facing social exclusion, to benefit from the therapeutic, social and employment opportunities offered by Real Bread making. You can read our plans here.
Our work also includes:
You can read highlights of our success to date, which we could not have achieved without the practical and financial assistance from our supporters, here.
The main benefit of becoming a Real Bread Campaign supporter is being part of the only network dedicated to championing the rise of Real Bread in our local communities and the people who bake it.
But if it's stuff you're interested in, then we've got a doozy for you, too: the 2014 Bake 5 discount package*:
These DISCOUNTS ARE WORTH MORE THAN EVEN OUR LOWEST SUPPORTER LEVEL!
*Details of the 2015 package TBC. For full details click here.
You'll also get:
Professional Real Bread bakers can also:
Annual Real Bread Campaign support packages start from LESS THAN £2 A MONTH!!
For an annual 10% discount you simply need to choose to pay by annual subscription. As this payment goes automatically each year, it also save you having to remember to renew your support.
We leave it up to you to decide at which level you will support our charity, but if you run a business we urge you to choose one that reflects its turnover.
We also ask that you encourage your staff to support us as individuals, so that they can each get the various benefits themselves.
As we welcome EVERYONE, we have set Level 1 support at £22.50*, which works out to less than £2 a month.
* £25 if you choose not to set up a subscription.
As we're the only organisation fighting the corner for Real Bread we think it's fair to ask for a teensy, weensy bit more from the larger companies that benefit directly and indirectly from our work.
Even if you don't make your dough from bread, perhaps you feel willing and able to make a slightly larger contribution to our charity, which even at the highest level works out to less than £9 a month.
From time to time, we have offers only available to people who support us at these higher levels.
To take advantage of this 10% discount each year, you simply need to pay by annual subscription online.
|Supporter level||Discounted rate|
If you'd prefer not to set up a subscription, the rates are £25, £50, £75 and £110, respectively.
You also have the option of supporting London Food Link at the same time, saving 25% off the usual rate for our sister network.
When you join us, where it asks 'where did you hear about us?' please note the name of the bakery, friend, magazine/newspaper or whatever/whoever pointed you our way. This helps us to know which ways of promoting our charity work best.
This is new and in the future we hope to be able to run prize draws for new Campaign supporters who complete this box and existing supporters who made the recommendation!
We organise frequent competitions for Real Bread Campaign supporters and to date, we have given away thousands of pounds worth of prizes.
Here are just some of the hundres of pounds worth of prizes we've given away to Real Bread Campaign supporters so far:
If you'd like to donate a prize please contact us.
We promote competitions in True Loaf (our quarterly magazine that goes to around 1500 of the most passionate real breadheads in the land), Breadcrumbs (our monthly enewsletter to our wider network of around 9000 friends), The Real Baker-e online forum, as well as to our many thousands of Twitter and Facebook followers.
We love connecting with Real Bread lovers outside Britain and welcome your support for our work here!
We have supporters in:
(Last updated October 2013)
As a supporter outside the UK, you can:
* If you're able to supply a UK address we can post a paper copy there instead.
**Prizes are almost all UK based - either classes in the UK or physical items (books, equipment etc.) that the donors will only post to UK addresses.
When we hear from an organisation outside the UK that appears to have similar aims and values to ours, we add their details here.
You might notice that in some places on this site we refer to Campaign members, rather than Campaign supporters.
This is simply because that's what we used to call our supporters and we're still working on updating various bits of our website.
As a supporter, you are part of a wider network of people who champion what we do or demonstrate their interest by subscribing to our mailing list or social media feeds.
This larger group of people are our friends.
So, all of our supporters are our friends, though not all of our friends support us by sending dough on a regular basis.
Why the change?
Sustain networks are making the change from members to supporters to recognise that fact that, by being kind enough to dig into their pockets on a regular basis, people are supporting our charity’s work financially.
We also reckon these changes:
Fear not – nothing is changing apart from the words we use and you don’t need to do anything different!
Exisiting supporters (fka members) will still receive True Loaf and still be eligible for all the discounts, offers and competitions we will continue to arrange to say thank you for your continuing support.
