After two years gone silent, the annual Sample our Soup fundraiser returns to the streets of Galway City this weekend for the local RNLI.
This heartwarming soup is prepared by Mark Hopkins, Head Chef at The Seafood Bar at Kirwans Lane to help the lifesaving work of the local lifeboat station.
Volunteers from the station will be on hand outside Taaffes Bar on Shop Street this Saturday, from 11am, serving soup to shoppers in one of their favourite events of the year.
This gives them an opportunity to meet people on the street, highlight the work done by lifeboat crews, and thank those they meet for their ongoing support.
Annette Cullen, Galway RNLI Volunteer Lifeboat Press Officer said, “Without volunteers like those in our fundraising team and our lifeboat crew who selflessly give of their own time, our lifeboat couldn’t function and continue to be rescue ready.”
“As a charity, we are reliant on the generosity of the public in supporting this work through fundraisers such as Sample Our Soup, so in advance of Saturday, we would like to say thank you.”
“Thanks too to our sponsors Kirwan’s Lane, Raftery’s Centra Claregalway and Cater Rent Ballybrit Industrial Estate for their continued support of this event.”
