Give them a Break

Glamping for the Homeless

The Farm Business Innovation Show sees the launch of the Give Them A Break project which has been set up by Kevin and Laura Baker.

After a dark period of homelessness, Kevin Baker got back on his feet when he started the `Nice Baps` roadside café near Wadebridge with his wife Laura. The café has become a huge success and has recently been voted the most popular eatery in Cornwall!

Kevin`s project is social entrepreneurship at it`s very best. He is setting up a small glamping site near his café which will be used for two months in high season at commercial rates, fours months a year at a subsidised rate for carers and others that deserve a break, and offered free to homeless families and individuals for the remaining six months a year.

Kevin and Laura hope that others will follow in their footsteps and that Give Them A Break sites will pop-up all over the country.

Glamping structure and en-suite pod provider CampPlus is supplying the couple with two fully fitted Glamping Barrels and a Duo en-suite unit at a very low cost to get the site going. These are on display at the Farm Business Innovation Show and will be shipped to Cornwall right after the show.
