HOW DOES IT WORK?

- People with great, early-stage ideas (projects or startups) that will provide lasting benefit to our community submit applications, and three are selected to present their ideas in a 10 minutes pitch during our evening event.
- Attendees make a suggested £10 donation per adult and £5 per child in return for receiving a bowl of soup and a roll and a vote on the evening. .
- After the presentations, attendees vote, and all of the votes are counted. The project pitch with the most votes wins the cash prize!
-----------------
WHAT FUNDS THE PRIZE AND WHAT OTHER BENEFITS EXIST FOR PITCHERS?

Attendee entrance donations on the night plus income from the sale of tea, coffee and cakes and any private donations will go directly to the pitcher with the most votes. .
Your money goes directly to supporting an amazing community project or social enterprise!
Beyond the cash prize for the winning project, each presenter still benefits from:
- Experience of pitching your idea
- Networking with other community-minded people, associations and groups
- Collaborative and co-production opportunities
-----------------
BOOKING INFO for applicants and attendees:

Applicants to pitch:

We invite local community groups, charities, good causes and new start projects (with a heart) to apply to pitch their project in a 5-10 minute presentation to our audience of local people.
This is a wonderful opportunity to receive cash funds which can impact your project immediately.
Applications to pitch are required in advance. Please make sure you select the “Pitcher Registration' ticket type in order to apply and complete the questions. A shortlist of three will be randomly selected and those successful will be notified in advance. Those who are unsuccessful on this occasion will be entered into the ballot for the next event in the same geographical area.

Attendees:

To attend this event to support and vote for a local cause, please make sure you select the 'Attendee Registration' ticket type. Your ticket includes a delicious bowl of soup, bread roll and a vote. Further purchases of tea, coffee and cakes can also be purchased.
