Behind the scenes of the Soup Kitchen
IN 2016 ‘Inside Out’ London covered the story of the modest beginnings of the Soup Kitchen and how it’s grown under Icolyn Smith.
Every great story starts somewhere. This is how The Oxford Soup Kitchen came to life.
If our story inspires you, maybe you would like to get involved?
The Soup Kitchen Celebrated its 30th Birthday in November 2020
2020 also saw us celebrate 30 years of working in the East Oxford community and it was also Icolyn’s (Mum’s) 90th birthday! This is a small video to show how we celebrated whilst observing the restrictions we continue to endure.
COVID 19 has left its mark on 2020 and has been a very hard year for everyone. We are so grateful to everyone who continues to support us during these hard times.
