Hot on the heels of the Great Taste Award came news this week that Rise has been nominated for another award!
We’re honoured to announce that we’ve been shortlisted by Blue Patch in their Social Impact category alongside some remarkable British social enterprises. Blue Patch is an online catalogue of British-made products and services with a sustainability edge. Their business awards recognise the efforts of social enterprises, SMEs and artisans who are committed to creating a principled economy.
The Social Impact Award is for socially minded businesses aiming to make a positive difference in their local communities, whether that’s with vulnerable people, education or the environment. Rise Bakery is showcased for its bakery training scheme for people affected by homelessness.
Watch this space for the judges’ verdict on 1 Sept. And don’t forget to bookmark Blue Patch in your browser as a your go-to place for ethical shopping. We think it’s brilliant.
In the meantime though, we need your help! Blue Patch have invited the public to vote for their favourite nominee to win a People’s Award. Winning will give us the chance to tell more people about Rise brownies and mean we can help more people affected by homelessness.
Vote now if you believe in our mission! http://www.bluepatch.org/en/directory/product/p/the-peoples-prize-5
