Welcome to Downend SOUP. Innovative micro-funding for charities and groups in the neighbourhood of Downend.
Powered by Christ Church Downend, SOUP is a way that local commuity groups can raise seed-corn funding for their ideas and make north Bristol a betterand fairer place to live.
Downend SOUP owes its roots to the famous Detroit SOUP. Join us on this journey to make Downend an even better community.

Here's how it works: come along, make a donation on the door, listen to three groups say how they feel they will make our community a better place, enjoy some locally made soup, enjoy some music, chat over the ideas with fellow guests and cast your vote. The pitch with the most votes gets all of the donations on the door to make their project a reality. Bring friends, bring family and yes children are very welcome - we think it's really important that they also get a say in their community.
Downend SOUP is powered by Christ Church Downend and generously supported by a number of Downend businesses.
We want to give the best start to our winning pitch so we suggest a donation of £5 to come to SOUP.
Students and unwaged donate what you feel able.
Children accompanied by an adult can vote for free or you can donate what you feel able.
