In a message posted on its website, the bakery said: “We will look to roll out the Bread Source National Loaf Scheme to all those facing hardship and isolation for £1 a loaf.

“Steve and the team are baking these loaves in their free time, and going forwards, are looking to work with other bakeries and suppliers to roll this out across East Anglia and the UK.”
