Love Russia Lent Soup Kitchen

Soup kitchen raised money for Love Russia charity that works with those in need in areas of severe poverty

If you frequent the Farmers’ Market in Newport, you might’ve spotted the soup kitchen a couple of weeks ago. Helen Staniford tells us more about why it was there. Ed

On Friday 11th March Love Russia organised a soup kitchen in the centre of Newport as part of a weekly Farmers’ market.

They offered free soup and information on Love Russia, a charity that goes into areas of severe poverty and works with a diverse range of those in need.

It was great to enjoy some wonderful homemade locally sourced soup on a ‘fresh’, but sunny Friday.

Donations received
We had an opportunity to meet supporters, as well as talking to others who stopped to have soup and a roll.

Donations amounted to £143 that will go towards the projects that Love Russia supports.

This was an event worth repeating so we hope to see you there again next year!

Another chance for free soup
If you can’t wait till then, please visit us at Thompsons Garden centre on the 12th of April from 6.30pm onwards.

We will be giving out more free soup and you can get 10% off anything bought in the store.
