Having helped bean-to-bar chocolate brand, Hans Sloane, get their cocoa into some of the major Oxford Street food retailers, Bridget then swung over from the corporate to the youth work side of life for a few years ending up working for a church on a council estate behind Clapham Junction. With her experience from the chocolate start-up and a growing passion to see the massive potential in inner city young people released, she founded Well Kneaded, a vintage van serving out award winning wood-fired sourdough ‘Firebread’ pizza’s and employing London’s young people; one at a time. Now, three years into the ‘Well Kneaded’ journey, with an extra oven on wheels to their name, Well Kneaded have catered events from F1 Redbull Summer Party to River Island’s Spring 2014 PR day and one of their first youth employees, Carl, is now a manager on the wagon.
