While its wheels have been turning on the city’s streets already, the Bunbury Soup Van was officially launched at an intimate gathering on Friday night.

Committee members and volunteers thanked the van’s generous supporters during the event at Cafe Panini inside Retravision.

Committee president Denise Ladhams gave an emotional thank you speech, praising volunteers, businesses and the community for getting the Soup Van off the ground.
