Fundraising Thanks to the WI

The Ashmore Green WI hosted a Craft Fayre on Saturday 16th November, raising much needed funding for the Newbury Soup Kitchen. With exceptional turnout the fayre proved a huge success, with stall holders and visitors delighted with the offerings; including the usual homemade cakes, sandwiches and teas.

A huge thanks goes to all those involved in setting up this event. And of course, thanks go to those attendees who help raise over £200 in the raffle alone. More funds are being raised by the WI and these will be donated around April 2020. 

Note: The Newbury Soup Kitchen is the Ashmore Green WI’s Charity of the Year

If you can help or assist in any capacity with fundraising, or you simply have some novel or interesting ideas; please do not hesitate to contact us by email at volunteer@newburysoupkitchen.org.uk

We have previously enjoyed valuable support from The Red House in Marsh Benham, The Castle at Donnington, as well as The Hare & Hounds in Speen – all of whom have provided much needed exposure to the Soup Kitchen – as well as much needed funds to bridge the weekly gap between donations and service offerings. Our weekly donations from local business remain hugely important to us, but inevitably there remains a gap. Sometimes for food items, sometimes for clothing or health and hygiene products. But there is typically always a shortfall. Helping to raise much needed funds ensure our continued service provision – throughout the year – throughout the seasons – and at times when the most vulnerable of our society need it. Again, if you have any ideas – please contact us….. volunteer@newburysoupkitchen.org.uk

We are always on the look out for new and interesting fundraising ideas and support. Whether your office or business can host some form of coffee morning, or whether your local pub or restaurant can host a quiz evening – we are always searching for new and interesting approaches.
