Soup Kitchen celebrates 35 years
Peterborough Soup Kitchen celebrated 35 years on Sunday of feeding homeless and disadvantaged people in the city.
The charity started out in 1983 at Westgate church and now provides a hot meal every weeknight, as well as on Sunday afternoons.
Trustee Kevin Dawson said: “It’s become a lot popular - demand has really taken off. We feed 50 to 60 people a night.
“We are now looking towards the next 35 years.”
The anniversary celebration also saw Gurdu Nanak volunteers handing out meals, while animal charity Wood Green gave dogs a check over and hairdresser Michelle Squires cut people’s hair for free. The soup kitchen is looking for more volunteers. To help out, or to learn more about food donations, visit: https://www.peterboroughsoupkitchen.org.uk/.
