Following its announcement in December, bakery chain Paul is “delighted” to have raised £13,280 for The Felix Project’s ‘Help a Hungry Child’ programme this December, which will help distribute fresh food to 120 of London’s “most deprived schools.”

Having teamed up with the charity two years ago, Paul’s latest bout of fundraising - donating 50p from every 400g+ loaf of bread sold in its London stores last month - brings its total amount raised to “nearly” £30,000.

As well as this, the company also gives all unsold bread to The Felix Project and makes freshly-baked bread pudding and briochettes for its shelters and three shools where several students are unable to eat breakfast before school “for various reasons.”

Paul chief executive, Jean-Michel Orieux, said: “I am delighted that Paul has managed to raise nearly £30,000 in just two years for The Felix Project. After the Paul team visited the shelter, it was wonderful to see how many we were able to help following donations from our customers as well as our daily food donations.

“We’re proud to have seen how many of our customers embraced the campaign and helped us to raise such a significant sum. We will continue our commitment to exploring new avenues to help this great charity and this worthy cause.”

Daisy Fletcher, development manager of The Felix Project, added: “We are so thrilled to be supported by Paul. Every day, Felix picks up surplus produce, including bread that they recycle into bread pudding, and then distributes it to hungry people who need it across London.

“As well as these edible donations, Paul is also generous in its financial donations to us. The £13,280 raised over Christmas is a terrific amount, and we are so grateful.”
