The Filling Station

Wroughton Parish Church supports the Filling Station which works to feed homeless people on the streets of Swindon. It runs a weekly soup kitchen from a car park in the town centre and is staffed by volunteers.

The soup kitchen provides not only hot soup, but hot dogs, hot drinks, blankets, clothing, toiletries and also a supply of tinned goods each week. The organisation raises its own funding and has no paid staff. It receives most of its support from a network of local churches, including ours, which provide sandwiches for the clients, volunteers and also contribute towards fundraising.
