Lunch is a souper way to help Christian Aid

TILEHURST residents helped to bowl over poverty when they took part in a Super Soup Lunch.

Members of the village’s Methodist church cooked up a tasty LOAF lunch – Local, Organic, Animal-friendly and Fairtrade. Items available included soup, bread and cakes, all sold to help raise money for some of the poorest communities in the world. Guests gave a voluntary donation of £2 for their lunches and could also buy fair-trade goods from a Traidcraft stall. The lunch raised £309.02 for Christian Aid and was held on Saturday, March 23 at the church.

The lunch is an annual event.
