Pizza@Newtownbreda: Your help is needed


The pizza nights have been a great success with over 50 attending each night, including many from the wider community.


It requires at least ten people to help with each Pizza@Newtownbreda night.

This includes advance tasks from 4.00 - 6.00pm - making dough, preparing toppings and setting up tables and other equipment.


Then, we need additional people from 5.30 - 8.00pm to welcome and assist those coming to make up pizzas. And, of course, we need help with clearing up.


If you are willing to help on one or more nights, please speak to Doug or Elaine Baker 9065 2487 or doug.r.baker@gmail.com or for 26th July and 2nd August to Denis or Marge Guiler.

Root Soup Van

Root Soup Fundraiser

Saturday 19th August

5 Ormiston Park BT4 3JT

10.00am-12 noon: Scones, tea & coffee;
12 noon-2.00pm: Soup & roll;
2.00pm-4.00pm pm: Cake, tea & coffee.


I have been volunteering with Root Soup this year and am inspired watching the work they do.


Root Soup is a social enterprise where people with learning disabilities or transitioning out of homelessness work together as a team to learn, grow and cater for the local community.


Root Soup is part of L’Arche, Belfast, and subsidises its existence with outside catering events.


With a suitable van a whole new range of catering jobs, currently logistically difficult, would become accessible to them.


Van = more work = sustainability = more investment into supported programmes and community lunches = developed skills and soaring self esteem all around!


Please join me to raise money for a Root Soup van.

Thank you, Elaine Baker
