After preparing the soup, hot water and sandwiches we visit three different places at set times each evening. These are:
› 7.30pm outside the railway station side of Argos in Grafton Gate.
› 8.00pm outside Iceland food store in the Food Centre, Avebury Boulevard.
› 8.30pm outside the JobCentre in Midsummer Boulevard.
You will see that we are NOT a Soup Kitchen – we do not serve from a warm indoor venue. Rather we go out on the streets in all kinds of weather – rain or shine, cold or hot.
The Soup Run has been operating for a decade and in the time since we have seen the number of clients increase dramatically as number of homeless in our city has gone up and those in work have increasingly found it difficult to make ends meet.
We always welcome donations of non-perishable goods, especially tomato and chicken soup, jars of coffee, teabags, disposable cups or financial contributions. If you are interested in helping in this way please contact us here.
