On the 4th December 2019, we hosted our second Soup Market, this year in support of Centrepoint. As a firm, it is important for us to provide value to our four stakeholder groups: clients, staff, owners and society and this initiative brings together all four groups, with a focus on society through our partnership with Centrepoint. Centrepoint's focus on giving homeless young people a future particularly resonates with our firm's ethos, and through their engagement programmes they are working to create a brighter future for disadvantaged young people.
Thanks to our restaurant partners for their generous contributions and everyone who made it to the soup market, we were thrilled to raise £15,175 to support Centrepoint, and generate further awareness on youth homelessness. It was a fantastic day with a cooking demonstration from Ben Lebus, Founder of MOB Kitchen, and performances from local school choirs throughout the afternoon. LGT Vestra's Soup Market gives you the opportunity to buy a soup from distinguished restaurants, for a minimum donation of £5, in the name of charity spirit and festive cheer.
