Thanks to your support, we were able to raise £300,636 over Christmas through the sales of our sandwiches and baguettes plus Foursquare check-ins. With this money we're able to distribute our unsold food via the Pret Charity Run and employment opportunities through the Simon Hargraves Apprenticeship Scheme. We're also able to help a selection of charities who in turn will provide food and support to hundreds of people fighting homelessness across the UK.
