WHO IS #SODTHIS?

#SodThis was founded by theatre director Susannah Tresilian who, with the help of the brilliant comic Sara Pascoe, decided to turn grief into action by organising an event to raise awareness and money for homeless charities. 

With the help and support of many wonderful people, friends and colleagues, #SodThis is now a growing team. If you want to contact us please email sodthis4alaugh@gmail.com.

Coffee 4 Craig, Craig White was a son, an uncle, a brother and a father.  What started as a simple call out on facebook for all their friends to buy a coffee for someone who is homeless, saying it was from Craig, quickly became a meal in Cardiff in his honour, then a food and coffee service in their home city of Manchester has now grown into a foodbank, 4 street kitchens over Cardiff and Manchester and they currently support over 200 people each week.  https://www.coffee4craig.com/
