IT WARMS the cold chill of winter from the inside, and is universally loved as soul food.

Soup, of 16 flavours and served in handmade bowls crafted by Potters' Place, will be served for the annual Soup Night fundraiser.

The evening, a popular way of making financial ends meet, will be held on July 25, with places limited at 120.

Margaret Shaw, a member of Potters' Place, said the public were welcome to enjoy as much soup and dessert as they pleased.

"Come and try our delectable food," she said.

"It's also a great opportunity to see what unique gifts we have for sale and new members are always welcome."

The local pottery outlet hosts lessons on Tuesdays, and club days regularly on Mondays and Thursdays.

Novices through to the most experienced are encouraged to drop in and give the wheel a spin.

"We are a very flexible group," Mrs Shaw said.

"Pottery is great therapy, I would encourage everyone to give it a go at least once."

The region famous Soup Night offers a unique opportunity to indulge in homemade soup, purchase the bowl it is served in and socialise with the Gladstone community.

Flavours, including pea and ham, cauliflower, pumpkin chilli, minestrone, and tomato and garlic, are just a selection of the wide range of freshly homemade soups available on the night.

A marquee and heaters will also help combat the winter chills.
