Morrisons’ bakery staff helped deliver 100 loaves of bread to a good cause while preparing for their big store opening.

The new supermarket in Handsworth, Birmingham opens on 31 January and, in preparation for the launch, the store’s bakery ovens had to be fired up to check they were in full working order. All the day’s baking was donated to the Handsworth Salvation Army.

General manager Chris Hampton said: “I am delighted that our first bake is going to such a worthy cause. We always try to ensure that nothing is wasted and therefore donating the bread to where we know it is needed provides the perfect solution.”
