A soup-er successful Winter Sale
Borough Market traders were given a run for their money last week when four local primary schools set up shop for the annual Young Marketeers Winter Sale.
Schools brought along a delicious array of soups including Thai carrot and lemongrass, chunky vegetable and spicy pumpkin. Freshly baked bread from Bread Ahead Bakery served as the perfect accompaniment on a cold February day.
An impressive total of £476 was raised by the young market traders which will allow FareShare to distribute 1,904 meals to vulnerable families across the capital made from surplus food.
