“This event is a perfect example of how our traders pull together to help support communities – whether that be local or beyond,” Darren Henaghan, the managing director of Borough Market, told the global media company Time Out.
“We are proud to be able to support such an important occasion and cause,” he added.
Bake for Beirut will have a large number of pastries and baked goods on sale. It will also include a charity auction featuring different prizes, including cookbooks, gift vouchers from top London restaurants — and even a pizza oven!
The initiative comes a little more than 2 months after the devastating explosion that rocked Beirut and left its people in disarray and absolute shock.
To this day, charitable initiatives are still taking place in solidarity with Beirut, the most recent of which was the cycling event Bike for Beirut, in which famed US cyclist Lance Armstrong participated this past weekend.
