Books and Bread for Kenya

No one in the UK or in Kenya is paid a wage and this is how BBK is able to support so many people in need.

GIFT CARD TO FEED HUNGRY KENYAN VILLAGES AT CHRISTMAS

Ideal for Christmas stockings, secret Santa gifts, employee tokens and small presents ideas.
Your little gift is described in a pretty gift card on which to write your own message

All too often the villagers Kenya cannot afford the basics many of us take for granted – like nutritious food, schooling for their children and essential medical care to treat their conditions. Here’s how your support can change that. BBK's alternative gift cards can be purchased for just £5 (plus £1 p&p for up to 3 cards) safe in the knowledge that 87% of the money given for the card will go directly to feeding three extremely poor villages in Kenya over the Christmas season. The remainder of the profit is used for printing this card.

Charity Fashion Show Hosted by the Ladies at Bethany City Church Sunderland

9th June 2018

For the 2nd year running this fabulous fashion show proved to be a spectacular event. Utilising clothes donated to BBK, the models on the catwalk really knew how to strut their stuff. During the interval guests enjoyed homemade cakes and the tension built over who would be quick enough to snap up the Hugo Boss shirt or Monsoon maxi dress. 
Alongside the fashion show, a sale table was available with beautiful items from the BBK store and a short presentation was given by trustee Maureen Nevitt, who took us through the projects BBK serve. The event brought in a combined total of £1667 which was wonderful achievement by all.
