On a cold and bright October Morning, Giveacar set up a little stall outside Asda, in Clapham Junction ready for their free coffee and tea morning to help promote their partnership with Brixton Soup Kitchen.
Giveacar have teamed up with Brixton Soup Kitchen, a brilliant homeless charity who are registered with Giveacar, in order to try and raise enough money to buy them an outreach van.
Both Giveacar and Brixton Soup Kitchen were handing out free tea and coffee in personalised take away cups to let the early commuters know about the project and encourage them to spread the word about the partnership.
Along with free coffee and tea, there were also doughnuts kindly donated from Greggs, and some amazing personalised biscuits, beautifully designed with both Giveacar and Brixton Soup Kitchen’s information, generously created and donated from Bespoke Biscuit Company
Brixton Soup Kitchen are a grassroots organisation helping homeless people and Londoners in need since 2013. They provide support and company for those who need it most; serving food and hot drinks to up to 70 a day as well as having helped four people get back into full time employment.
Brixton Soup Kitchen have teamed up with Giveacar to raise enough money to be able to purchase an outreach van. The van will enable the outreach team to deliver basic necessities to those that need it most across London, and further afield.
Tea and coffee were handed out for the entire morning to anyone passing by, helping themselves to biscuits and doughnuts too! There were even a few homeless people who stayed and spoke to Solomon Smith, the co-founder of the Brixton Soup Kitchen who informed them of their work.
Overall it was a great success, tea and coffee was had by all and hopefully more people now know about Giveacar and Brixton Soup Kitchen.
To date Giveacar have raised a staggering £3,355.12 for Brixton Soup Kitchen, which is fantastic! If you want to read more about the project just click here.
