Who are Crosstown?
Crosstown is a scratch bakery in London specialising in sourdough doughnuts, small batch ice cream, homemade cookies, extraordinary chocolate, and specialty coffee. The company was founded in 2014 by JP Then and Adam Wills, starting as a street food stall.
Crosstown has since grown into an omni-channel retailer and currently has 25 sites across, a store in Cambridge and Oxford, online nationwide ordering, events, catering, and wholesale segments.
In 2017 the brand launched a range of vegan sourdough doughnuts, made with alternative ingredients such as chia seeds, coconut butter and silken tofu, and were awarded Best Vegan Doughnuts by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in 2018 and ‘The Best Doughnuts’ by Vegans of London in 2019. A selection of vegan flavours is available at all Crosstown locations and online.
In 2020, the brand extended their offering to include homemade cookies and ice cream. Crosstown Ice Cream is made in small batches, using traditional methods and the finest seasonal ingredients to develop real flavour and a smooth, silky finish. Each flavour can be paired with homemade toppings inspired by the brand’s award-winning doughnuts or served with dairy or oat milk for a refreshing shake.
In December 2021, Crosstown launched a range of chocolate bars, with flavours inspired by their menu of award-winning doughnuts, such as Matcha and Yuzu & Passionfruit.
Available in-store and online, the chocolate bars can be purchased individually, as bundles of three or six, as well as with curated gifting options (online only). Crosstown’s full range of sweet treats are available in-store and for online delivery, with orders placed at www.crosstown.co.uk.
About Homeless Oxfordshire
For Homeless Oxfordshire, their beginning was humble. In a shabby old school building, named Oxford Night Shelter, they provided overnight emergency accommodation to anyone that needed a warm bed and a roof over their head. It was far from ideal. But they used what they had and gave it their all. With 12 people in each room, they were pushed but strived to provide the best service they could. Transforming classrooms into dormitories and providing everyone with food, washing facilities and as much support as possible.
Fast-forward 34 years, and they are one of the largest homeless accommodation providers across the county. Not only do Homeless Oxfordshire provide accommodation at 56 bed hostels in the City Centre of Oxford, but they have 144 beds across the local community, in 24 properties, offering a full range of support.
Homeless Oxfordshire’s mission is to provide short term accommodation with access to high quality support and initiatives that enable people to have a safe space, in which they can begin to take control of their own lives and recover from homelessness. Through the provision of a wide range of different types of accommodation, people learn how to manage a tenancy, improve their self-esteem, a more positive self-identity and gain the skills that will enable them to move on, live and succeed with greater independence.
