SOUP #4 – February 2016 – pics are UP!

We have made it to SOUP number 4 and raised over £1500 for 4 very worthy community projects for the city. YAY!

February’s SOUP was an after-work gathering (we like to alternate between Saturday afternoon’s and Thursday post work get togethers) which saw Nyrees from Nettlefest, Sharon from The Square Peg Foundation, the Beyond Borders team from the Gap Arts Project, and the delightfully colourful team from new YouTube channel The Vibe, all pitch for the £315 door takings.

This month’s voting was a close call but it was Gap Arts that caught the audiences imagination!

Thanks to everyone that came along on Thursday evening to support the projects, to LOAF who once again kindly donated bread to go with our delicious SOUP (red lentil dahl and cauliflower &roasted red pepper this month incase you missed out) and Impact Hub Brum for their kind hospitality and use of their amazing space!

Our next SOUP event will be on Saturday 19th March (doors 11am for a 12noon start). Everyone is welcome so feel free to bring the family – kids get a vote too! We’ll be serving up a SOUP lunch and sharing food and snacks donated by guests.

If you have been inspired and have a project idea that benefits the community of Birmingham then why not head over to our ‘Submit a Proposal’ page. Deadline for the next event is Friday 4th March.

Thanks to Ming for the great pics.
