Stop for Soup is an appeal to highlight issues of homelessness in Scotland today and to provide an easy way for you to get involved and help.

It’s about doing something simple, such as eating a bowl of soup with friends, and donating the money you would spend to help transform the lives of people in need. Stop for Soup is created so you can do something amazing and make a real difference and enjoy some soup at the same time.

So, what do you want me to do?

We would love you to get involved with Stop for Soup by attending or hosting a soup event to highlight the needs of homeless people and to help raise some money to support Bethany’s vital services that help homeless and vulnerable people.

How do I do that?

It’s quite easy. Identify a time and place you could host Stop for Soup; it could be in your local church, school, community group, place of work or even at home. We will supply posters, flyers and publicity materials to advertise your event. You supply soup (homemade or bought), bread, recycled disposable cups and something to collect the money in and simply serve people their soup. We suggest asking for a donation of £3 from each of your guests and all the proceeds from the money you raise will allow Bethany to provide life-saving services for homeless people.
