Mossley SOUP is go!

The Detroit SOUP seed has finally taken root in Mossley.

A few local volunteers have come together to launch Mossley SOUP with the aim of bringing the community together to promote, fundraise and support local projects for the people of Mossley. We’re working on plans to host the first event in March and are currently looking for projects to present on the night.

Unsure of the SOUP concept? For a donation of £5, diners will receive soup, bread, hear four project presentations and then vote for their favourite idea. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience. The winning project idea will receive all of the money raised on the night to carry out their project. For the first Mossley SOUP event we are hoping to attract at least 100 diners and aiming to raise £500 for the winning project.

We’re appealing to local community groups, voluntary organisations, artists and individuals with a project idea you need funding for. The project can be anything; youth related, sports, environmental, something creative or a new business start-up. The only criteria is that the project has to be of benefit to the Mossley community.
