Here’s a video from another team in Cardiff on The Paradise Run…

Churches from all over Cardiff each take responsibility one night a month to run a project called “The Paradise Run” organised by Rainbow of Hope. Eden Church are involved every fourth Wednesday of the month, when around 15 church members gather provisions, cook food, deliver and serve it, then re-load their cars to tidy up and later wash up back in Penarth. They are helped behind the scenes by Trinity Methodist Church, Penarth, who collaborate with us in this and other community ventures to help those in need.

Rainbow of Hope

From the Rainbow of Hope website:

“Our soup run – The Paradise Run – takes place from 8 – 9 o’clock every week night. Food and drink are served to anyone in need, and not exclusively to the homeless. Recipients of the soup run are from varying backgrounds. Some are rough sleepers; others sleep in squats or live in hostels. Many have experienced relationship difficulties, are struggling with drug or alcohol problems or are lonely or bereaved. What they all have in common is the need for someone to stand alongside them and share their burden. We listen to their problems and help if we can, or point them in the right direction.

The main focus of the soup run is therefore:
1. To feed those who are hungry
2. To be a friend

Eden Church’s Homeless Ministry:

There are 2 parts to Eden’s monthly Homeless Run for The Rainbow of Hope: preparation and serving.
We provide (each time we go):

  • hot food: shepherds pies (usually about 9 that serve 6-8 people each)
  • 1 chocolate bar (enough for 50 people)
  • 1 banana (enough for 50 people)
  • hot and cold drinks: tea, coffee, hot chocolate and squash
  • milk: plentiful pints of milk (approx 40-50 pints)

The Paradise Run is located on Charles Street, opposite the rear door of Marks and Spencers on Queen Street.”

There is a warm welcome waiting for all volunteers with a few hours a month to spare there are many ways to help – for more information please contact Kath Mayor (as above left).
