THANK YOU Newcastle for supporting the Soul 2021 Winter Appeal

We are so appreciative of Newcastle for getting behind those most at need in our community and helping us out with our Winter Appeal, and donating tonnes of jackets, scarves and beanies, and food, and raising $58,575.

You have made a powerful difference this winter by donating funds and goods to help Soul Café Newcastle assist vulnerable people and rough sleepers our local community. The gift of warm clothes can make a significant difference not only to their comfort but to their mental wellness, and a warm soup or cup of milo really fills the belly and lifts the spirits on a cold, wet winters day.

THANK YOU so much Newcastle for supporting Soul.

Soul Café 

Soul Cafe was established in 2003 to provide a daily hot meal to those people who are vulnerable and disadvantaged or sleeping rough in our community.

The impacts of COVID have seen great impacts in our community.

We are continuing to do a Covid-Safe takeaway lunch Monday-Thursday and takeaway brekkie Friday, along with our usual fortnightly Sunday lunch service from 12-1pm (5th September, 19th September, 3rd, 17th, and 31st October).
