Meet our youngest volunteer

In Feb 2022 Matt & Sue from Soul were privileged to see Holly receive the Australian Scout Award (Australian Scout Medallion). Congratulations to our youngest volunteer.

Back in Nov 2019 a group from the 1st New Lambton Scouts came to visit Soul for a tour. It was wonderful to see how interested the kids were in what we do at Soul Cafe and one of the scouts who visited with the group, Holly, was so enthusiastic about everything she learned during her visit, that she reached out to us offering to organise an initiative to support Soul’s Christmas Appeal.

Holly collected $5-$10k food/personal care items, sold $750 in raffle tickets, collected $1450 in donations and made 57 Christmas Hampers for the homeless valued at $3750.

Over the next few weeks, Holly collected $5-$10k food/personal care items, sold $750 in raffle tickets, collected $1450 in donations and made 57 Christmas Hampers for the homeless valued at $3750.

Today, Holly is part of our Soul Family and still involved at Soul. Every school holiday she comes into Soul Café and volunteers her time and energy.

We love you Holly and congratulations on this achievement.
