Instagram sensation raises money for charity with special edition Pride box
Jessica Ward | 25th June 2021
To celebrate Pride month, instagram sensation The Savvy Baker has created a limited-edition Pride box with all proceeds from sales going directly to the charity The Proud Trust.
Fronting the Savvy Pride Campaign is drag sensation, Harvey Rose, who also happens to be the Bakery Manager at The Savvy Baker. Other drag royalties taking part in the Savvy Pride Campaign includes Silllexa Diction and Malibu the Doll.
Available from Monday 28th of June, for one week only, the £22 Pride box will consist of a mixture of 9 signature Savvy bakes including a one-off special bake.
“Supporting the LGBTQ community is so important to me. I go to Manchester Pride every year, without fail. A lot of my friends are part of the community, as are a few members of The Savvy Baker team. I think it’s important for me to try and set an example, to be as supportive as I can be and also to help in any way I can,” says its founder and director, Savannah Roqaa.

The Proud Trust is a charity organisation that supports LGBQT+ young people by providing safe spaces through youth groups, networks and the LGBQT+ Centre in Manchester which delivers training, runs events and campaigns, as well as undertaking research and creating resources.
The 25-year-old baking sensation, Savannah Roqaa has been going from strength to strength in recent times. The business has boomed and since its creation just over 12 months ago, she now has her very own bakery supplying her delicious bakes to the masses.
“I never imagined I would end up with a business in baking. For me baking was just something to do to fill my time whilst I was bored in lockdown with nothing to do. I live alone so after I had baked, I made little care packages and dropped them off to my friends, to try and bring a bit of positivity to their day. It was nice to get out of the house and drive around, waving at my friends from a distance. It was the only human interaction I was getting.”
“Now just felt like the right time for me to give something back, and the LGBTQ community is so close to my heart, it felt like a great place to start.” Says Savannah, speaking on her success.
