Volunteers wanted for soup run

Could you lend at hand at a Crosspool-organised soup run that helps Sheffield’s homeless people?

For several years, volunteers from the community and local churches of Crosspool have been helping homeless people by making and distributing sandwiches, hot drinks and soup in designated city centre locations.

They do this every other Monday evening between September and May, arriving at 8pm and finishing before 9pm.

Organisers are looking for some more volunteers who would be willing to come down and help distribute the food and drinks. You can choose whether to help out one every four weeks, or every two weeks – most do a monthly rota.

If you are interested and would like to know more, then please email the organiser for Crosspool, Eddie.sherwood@btinternet.com.

Soup Run funds raised by Crosspool Festival Art Exhibition

The first exhibition of artists living in or strongly connected to Crosspool took place as part of this year’s Crosspool Festival. It brought together professionals and amateurs at the week-long show at St Columba’s Church.

The lovely light venue was excellent and the generosity of those who attended raised more than £220 for the Soup Run*. Those who didn’t come missed a treat! Judith Hanson

*The Soup Run distributes food to the homeless in town and is orgainised by St Columba’s and Stephen Hill churches
