POOLE SOUP is a community meal that creates micro-grants for creative community projects in POOLE. At a suggested donation of £5 you get a homemade Vegan soup made by our friends at The Coffee House, some tasty bread and one very important vote.
Together we hear from four projects who will pitch for the money raised on the door. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy the creative surroundings and vote on the project they think benefits Poole the most. At the end of the night, the votes are counted and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP event to report their project’s progress.
There have already been a number of successful SOUP events across Dorset with two in Bridport, two in Boscombe and one in Winton.
The SOUP events are modelled on the DETROIT SOUP and more information can be found on their website, where you will find all the resources you need to host your own SOUP event in your community.
