The Soup-er Success of Soupfest 2023

It’s safe to say Soupfest has once again been a success with the latest recipe book selling over 1000 copies. It’s travelled the globe from England and Northern Ireland to France, Germany and even Texas, USA.

The recipe book has raised a grand total of £10k which will have a profound impact on the young people living at YMCA MK. We will continue to support our residents with not only safe and secure housing but also by providing the practical, emotional and employment support need to help residents belong, contribute and thrive.

Each book sold has drawn us a step closer to securing a better future for young people in Milton Keynes.

Thank you to everyone who supported SoupFest 2023, we are thrilled that it has been a soup-er success!  We have loved working with our fantastic contributors and meeting so many of our community who purchased a book, came to see us at various community and Christmas events and kindly shared, or commented, on our social media posts, we could not have reached our fundraising target without you!  Every penny raised helps us to continue to provide a safe place to call home and support local young people to belong, contribute, and thrive.” Lorraine Devereux, Fundraising Manager.

A huge thank you to our sponsors for this year’s book, Brioche Pasquier and Cranswick.
