Wilmslow Wells is dishing up another souper fundraiser


Wilmslow Wells for Africa are holding their second Souperday of the year at St John's Church Rooms on Thursday 26th October.

The charity has been organising two souperdays each year since 1990 which have proved very popular, attracting a loyal group of supporters who turn up every time to enjoy the soup and bread.

There will be a choice of four soups served with bread, all of which is homemade, plus a hot drink is included in the entry price of £4 (children half price).

You can also choose to buy from a wide selection of cakes, preserves and textiles.

All the money taken goes to our charity to help provide clean, more reliable sources of water in rural Africa.

Jenny Gibbs, Chair of Wilmslow Wells said "The cost of providing clean water for one person in rural Africa is often less than £4. So one bowl of soup means one person would be able to have clean water."

Their last Souperday in March raised £1400 for the direct action charity which aims to improve life in drought-stricken areas of Africa by providing wells, pumps, dams and water collection equipment. In total the charity has raised over £1million since they were formed in 1984.

They keep administration costs to a minimum so that 99.2% of everything they raise is spent directly on projects to provide clean water, made possible because their organisation operates entirely on voluntary effort.

The Souperday will run from 11am to 2pm at St John's Church Rooms, Knutsford Road, Wilmslow, SK9 6EL.
