Bross Bagels are selling a limited edition creation to raise money for charity, ahead of opening a new street food venture in Leith.

Edinburgh’s Bross Bagels have created a multi-coloured rainbow inspired and limited edition vegan bagel called ‘Holes of Hope’ for one week only, with all proceeds going to a selection of Scottish charities.

The brightly coloured ‘Holes of Hope’ have been designed to encourage love and positivity and bring people together during these times.

From 22-28th June only 100 Bross bagels rainbow creations will be available throughout their shops in Edinburgh, in Bruntsfield, Stockbridge, West End and Portobello.

The rainbow bagels will be available for click and collect online and takeaway from all four shops, priced at £10, which will all go to charity.

The news comes in the same week that the Bross Bagels are set to open in the Arches in Leith.

Bross StrEAT will open on Saturday 27 June and will be situated in front of Leith Arches, making this the permanent residence for their Leith Bross Bagels branch.

The charities

Bross Bagels have teamed up with a different Scottish charity each to give back to them. With all proceeds of the eye-catching bagels going to support and continue to raise awareness of each chosen charity.
