Soapy Support for Red Cross Soup Patrol

Eleven Hale students turned up at the Red Cross depot last week and got to work cleaning Soup Patrol buses.
Hale School students and staff have been involved with the Red Cross Soup Patrol for many years now. Two Year 11 boys and two Hale staff members go out once a week and serve soup to the homeless in the City of Perth.

So when the Red Cross Soup Patrol contacted Mr Baiju Patel, Hale organiser of soup patrol activities, requesting help to clean the buses, the Hale team rose to the challenge! Although the buses are cleaned at the end of each night, they still need a more thorough clean periodically.

They are big buses and the boys worked well in two teams to get the vehicles thoroughly clean in no time at all. Inevitably, getting wet was all part of the job, but some of the water did actually get on the buses, too!

Serena Richardson, the food security program coordinator Red Cross Soup Patrol was very impressed with our boys’ efforts: “The boys were delightful and worked very hard to make the vans shiny and clean. I hope they had fun.”

Well done to all the boys involved.
