We are SO pumped to announce our new initiative for Doughheads, a monthly partnership with a local charity or for-purpose organisation!
Doughheads was founded here in Newcastle in June 2014 as a small market stall and since then, we have received incredible support from you, our Tribe of loyal followers. YOU guys are the reason Doughheads exists and why we have experienced such incredible growth. Our Tribe is at the heart and soul of everything we do and we are dedicated to showing our appreciation in ways that will give back to our community and make a difference!
For the month of September we are partnering with @soulcafenewcastle by way of fundraising events, donations, volunteer work and using our influence to raise awareness of this awesome organisation and what they do within our local community!
Soul Cafe provides approximately 700+ free meals per week to highly disadvantaged members of our community, but these meals are simply a medium for them to be able to work with people in a greater way. However, Soul Cafe is non-government funded organisation and relies on the financial sponsorship from corporations and individuals, fundraising events and volunteers giving of their time.
Doughheads will be aiming to partner with Soul Cafe in a few different and fun ways during September...
Donations: we will be pledging $1 from each sale of our charity doughnut of the month along with all tips given in store at The Junction.
Fundraising: we will be putting on a doughnut eating fundraiser with two local bodybuilding lads, Jak Nelson and Tim Bradstreet on Sunday, 10th September. We are asking for your support by coming along to the event to cheer for them and pledging $1 per doughnut they can eat.
Awareness: we will be promoting Soul Cafe and the work they do through our social media platforms and website, encouraging our Tribe to take an interest in our local community and the organisations supporting it.
Volunteering: with staff giving up their time to volunteer at Soul Cafe, helping to prepare and serve meals and generally assist at the Soul Cafe headquarters in Newcastle in whatever way we can.
We hope that you will join us in our efforts to make a difference in our community!
