Aid For Canaries Baker
The Canaries Improvement Association, formerly the Canaries Ambulance & Improvement Committee - a group that was formed in response to an identified need of providing an ambulance service for Canaries, which was successfully achieved in 1995 in partnership with the Canaries UK Association - is now embarking on another ambitious project. This entails achieving the reopening of one of the best known establishments in Canaries.
Spring’s Bakery, the popular bakery established just past the Canaries bridge and makers of the popular Canaries bread, suffered complete devastation during the passage of the Christmas Eve trough. This loss occurred at a point when the business was just getting back on its feet after similar losses during hurricane Tomas.
Despite the owner’s best efforts at recovery, it has not been possible for Mr. Cyprian Altenor (Spring) to resume operations close to one year after the disaster. The owner has been able to repair some of his ovens and other items which were damaged during the event as well as securing a new location for his operation. However, there is one last hurdle to cross: that of the acquisition of dough mixers.
Considering the bakery’s success at putting Canaries “on the map”, it being a must-stop spot for both locals and visitors, the Canaries Improvement Association believes it a worthwhile project to assist the owner in his recovery efforts, bearing in mind his direct employment of eight workers as well as the other businesses which sprung up around the bakery providing self-employment to a number of residents.
Canaries Improvement Association has decided to make a monetary contribution from existing funds as well as putting together a fund raising Bar-B-Que and Dance on Saturday 13th December, 2014, the entire proceeds from which will be donated to the bakery during a presentation on Wednesday 24th December, 2014, the first anniversary of the trough’s passage.
