Cup Of Tea: Laura Doyle On 'Pass The Pineapple' - The Anfield Wrap

Lizzi Doyle is joined by Laura Doyle from the band Baiana to discuss their ‘Pass The Pineapple’ fundraiser in aid of Knowsley Kitchen…

The Liverpool-based Brazilian Jazz band have decided to use their time in lockdown while they’ve been unable to perform to find a way for people to virtually get together and have a dance while also raising money for Knowsley Kitchen, who are giving local families in need access to fresh food during COVID-19 and beyond.

Baiana has partnered up with some famous faces, including John Barnes, John Bishop, Simon Rimmer and Louis Saha to spread the word and now they want the whole city to get involved.

People are being asked to share a video of themselves passing a pineapple (or any fruit they have to hand) from one side of the screen to another and tag @BaianaBand or email their video to [email protected]

Each video acts as a pledge to donate £5 to Knowsley Kitchen, so you could be passing a pineapple to John Bishop or booting an orange to John Barnes all while helping this amazing charity.
