The Cathedral supports a wide range of charitable organisations in a variety of ways but in particular it runs two weekly projects reaching out to the homeless and vulnerably housed of the city:

S.O.A.R (Soup On A Run)

Every Wednesday a small team of volunteers from the Cathedral Community provide a simple meal for the disadvantaged of the city. Gathering at the top of South Street, on the site of the Farmers Market, jacket potatoes with fillings and hot drinks are served between 18.00 & 18.45. 

S.O.A.R is funded entirely by donations from our supporters and if you are interested in making a donation please contact chancellor@exeter-cathedral.org.uk 

For all other enquires regarding S.O.A.R please contact Penny Harris: penny@harris58.com

The Friday Night Café

Every Friday evening (19.30-21.00) volunteers from the Cathedral community serve the homeless and vulnerably housed people of Exeter by offering a soup supper, with hot drinks and snacks in the Chapter House. The café offers a valuable opportunity to build up relationships and enjoy a time of socialising for both volunteers and guests alike. The Cathedral values their excellent relationship with the St Petrock's Centre which provides valuable on-going support for the homeless of Exeter 

The Café is funded by donations and gifts of money and sleeping bags are always appreciated.

For enquiries regarding the Friday Night Café please contact the Canon Chancellor by email chancellor@exeter-cathedral.org.uk
