The Gathering's soup kitchen was great last night and it got us thinking about what we might expect this coming winter in terms of numbers.
Having been running the soup kitchen for almost two years we've established some patterns and the most noticeable one is how the numbers of folk wanting soup in summer is clearly down on the winter numbers. However, of late, despite Summer being long and hot, we've noticed the numbers creeping up and we're regularly serving 40+ people, most of whom are regulars.This coming winter is being predicted as a long cold one and as such we can expect to be serving 60 to 70+ folk each week. What a great problem to have!
Just before our soup kitchen started Errol was able to help Joel with his homework.
