Students providing necessities to Nottingham’s homeless population, twice a week, all year round.
What is our project?

Our project’s aim is to help some of the hundreds of people currently homeless in Nottingham. With the help of our student volunteers we provide 2 weekly soupruns on Sundays and Tuesdays at 8pm in the city centre providing food, hot drinks, essentials and information on further available support to Nottingham’s homeless population.

We are aiming to raise £3500 to fund our vital soupruns for the rest of the year and particularly for out of term summer months when fundraising becomes more difficult.

Don’t forget that every donation up to £1620 is doubled by the University of Nottingham’s Cascade fund!

Who are Souprunners?

Souprunners is a non-profit student-led organisation purely run by University of Nottingham students. We are a body made up of individuals from all subjects, years of study and backgrounds!

Where is the money going?

Homelessness in Nottingham is growing at an alarming rate and the available level of support offered is simply not enough to meet this rising demand. Therefore, many homeless people rely on Souprunners’ handouts of food, hot drinks, clothing and equipment (i.e. sleeping bags) to survive and get back on their feet.

All of the funds raised from our minimum target will go directly to Nottingham’s homeless population in the form of our weekly ‘soupruns’, however if we exceed this target we will be able to afford a sleeping bag drive and better quality winter clothing to handout!

We’ve had many success stories in the past and with your help we can create more in the future!
