Thanks for visiting Sue, Luke P and Luke C Sleepout for Soul Fundraising Page!!

Soul Cafe is a local, non-government funded charity, who with the support of over 130 volunteers, provide hundreds of free sit down and take away meals each week to the vulnerable and marginalised members of our community.

"My name is Luke Conners, born and raised in Newcastle. I’m a local businessman in the trade. I enjoy travelling and have been lucky enough to have done a great deal in recent years to poor, third world countries. I truly believe we’ve won the lotto being born in Australia.
Theres massive need overseas for so much help but if you take a harder look within our own city, theres also huge need.
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.” Mother Teresa.
Soul Cafe, does amazing work giving hope to people of Newcastle that feel like they don’t have any. My purpose behind sleeping on the Street for Week is to raise money and more awareness for a major issue right here an our home town and to get more of an understanding myself of what some people have to go endure."

Many of Soul Cafe’s guests are dealing with issues of homelessness, poverty, drug or alcohol addiction, crime or violence, separation, mental health or illness concerns and accommodation needs.

Soul Cafe is a community response to a community need.
