Little things can make big changes
HOW IT WORKS
The aim of The Stable Community SOUP is to help change our local community by bringing together members of the community to pitch their ideas for improving our town – from art to social entrepreneurship, from urban agriculture to justice.
Come to our next SOUP event and get soup, bread, salad and an all-important voting token. You’ll also have an opportunity to donate to the prize pot. All of our food and drink is donated, sponsored or rescued from being thrown away, so every penny you donate when you arrive goes into the prize pot.
Arrive from 6.30pm, mingle and chat.
At 7pm, after a short introduction, three projects pitch their ideas and bid for your support. The only rule for projects is that they must benefit the community in the Weston area.
Each presenter has a few minutes to share their idea, followed by a few questions from the floor.
Listen to each project pitch, ask a question, see who inspires you with their vision and ideas.
After the pitches, you get to enjoy your food (it’s likely to include soup…), chat to others and discuss the projects.
And don’t forget to place your voting token into the box for the project that gets your vote.
Just before 9pm, the winning project is announced and the prize pot is allocated according to the votes.
Make sure you come back to the next community soup for an update from the winner about how they have used the money to benefit your community.
