Project Soup

Project Soup comes to Thamesmead for the first time on Thursday 22 September, and we're looking for community groups in Thamesmead to pitch ideas to earn funding for great local projects.

Inspired by Detroit Soup in the US, Project Soup allows members of the community to pay a small entry fee in return for a bowl of soup and the right to vote for one of the organisations pitching an idea for a community project. The organisation gaining most votes will then be given the entry money gathered from the event.

The last Project Soup event raised £588.50 for a local charity

Peabody has already held three successful sessions at the Hugh Cubitt Centre in King's Cross, working with Clear Village and Project Dirt. Last month's event raised £588.50 for Centre 404, a wonderful small local charity that helps to provide activities for children and adults with learning disabilities. Find out more

Project Soup Thamesmead takes place at Birchmere Community Hub on Thursday 22 September, 6-9pm. Entrance, including soup, a side and a drink, is £3 adults, £1 children and £5 a family ticket.

With over 100 community groups in Thamesmead we're expecting some exciting propositions. If you know a group who would be interested in taking part or want to join the audience, contact Lisa Ann Newton on 07837 031127 or
