SoupFest 2017

This past Tuesday, the Sycal team were in Harpur Square, Bedford, to celebrate SoupFest 2017.

Across the UK, the number of people homeless or sleeping rough is growing at an alarming rate, and Bedford is no exception. To combat this, Soup Fest was launched. An incredible event that saw Bedfordshire’s top chefs taking to the town centre to cook a wide range of delicious soups and breads from as little as £3 per bowl. Every single penny raised from the event went to the homeless people of Bedford.

Alongside a number of local businesses, Sycal became an official sponsor to this worthy cause, and offered our services and products to help promote the event. By creating branded aprons, we were able to kit-out all of the chefs in official SoupFest 2017 in matching uniforms.


With all of the fantastic soups and charitable donations, SoupFest was able to raise almost £4,500 to help those without a home in Bedfordshire.

Since Tuesday, the event has made front page headlines and gained further support from other businesses in the area. With SoupFest 2018 already scheduled for Tuesday 4th December, don’t miss out on the chance to be part of this incredible fundraiser.
