Local organisations Stir to Action and Communities Living Sustainably are teaming up to bring the ‘Soup’—a live crowdfunding event and community dinner—to Bridport this autumn. Supporting community development and regeneration, the first Bridport Soup will take place on Thursday evening, 29 September at the WI Hall.
The idea is simple: For £4 you get a bowl of soup made from locally sourced produce and a vote. During the evening four local projects will each deliver a four-minute pitch about their project, its community benefits and what the funding will support. Each pitch is then followed by four or five questions from the audience, and then the crowd votes. The winning project receives the takings from the door and pledges to share how they’ve used their funding at the next Soup.
Sign up via eventbrite to confirm your place and pay 'What you Feel' on the night (Suggested contribution from £4 upwards).
