This March sees the twelfth Mossley SOUP community crowdfunding dinner in support of local projects which benefit the town.
The Mossley SOUP organisers are appealing for local residents to support, attend and cast their vote at the evening event on Thursday 17 March. The initiative aims to bring the community together to promote, fundraise and support local projects that benefit the people of Mossley.
For a donation of £5, diners receive freshly made soup, hear four project presentations and then vote for their favourite idea. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and an opportunity to answer four questions from the audience. The project idea to secure the most votes receives all of the money raised on the night to carry out their project.
Past Mossley SOUP dinners have raised between £545 and £1,726 for each of the winning projects. All projects presented at Mossley SOUP can also benefit from increased public awareness, new volunteers, donations of materials and other financial support.
The twelfth Mossley SOUP dinner, sponsored by Premier Automotive, will take place on Thursday 17 March from 6.15pm at Emmaus Mossley. As well as the four short presentations, the event will also include guest speakers, live music and a fundraising raffle.
Mossley SOUP is organised by volunteers with support from Emmaus Mossley, Mossley Town Council, The Vale and a range of local businesses. For more details on the next event visit http://bit.ly/MossleySOUP.
