Threshold, Swindon’s homelessness charity, is looking for participants to run to their emergency hostel in the centre of town, to deliver tins of soup and food as part of their annual Soup Run event on Thursday 3rd November.
Threshold is aiming to re-stock their supplies ahead of the busy winter period with tins of soup or food and is hoping generous and fit supporters will come out on the afternoon of the 3rd and run with their tins. There is no set distance and no entry fee, runners just need to arrive at Culvery Court, Harding Street, between 4:30pm and 7:30pm. This is a free to enter event and it is an opportunity to raise funds for the charity through sponsorship. As an incentive there will be event t-shirts for participants who raise £10 or more in sponsorship.
Threshold serve 2 hot meals every day to 30 residents in their hostel and move-on houses and support up to another 50 a day at Breakfast Club, Day Centre and the Filling Station, so it’s crucial this is a successful event and a really good crowd attend. Phil Smith, Operations Director at Threshold said “We are encouraging people of all ages and fitness levels to enter in teams or as an individual to challenge each other as well as themselves on what is sure to be a cold, dark evening to raise vital funds and food supplies for the winter”.
