Souper Sunday - Jan 10th, 2010
On Sunday 10th January 2010, congregations all over Scotland – and all over the world – marked "Souper Sunday", by serving soup and having an Elder-led service.
This was a fund-raising initiative organised by The Church of Scotland HIV/AIDS Project.
Here in New Aberdour we decided to go with the Elder-led service on the Sunday but to serve the soup in the village hall the day before. As it turned out, the Saturday was a bitter cold day with lying snow but despite all of this, people turned out and the event was a resounding success.
The fantastic sum of £191.30 was raised.
