INDIVIDUALS, artists, groups, charities and business start-ups with an idea to benefit the community are being invited to share it at the next Mossley SOUP event at Emmaus Mossley on Thursday, July 4.
A total of four projects will be given chance to pitch to an audience for support with the only criterion the idea must benefit the Mossley community.
Attendees donate £5 in return for food, entertainment and an opportunity to hear four project presentations, a vote and a contribution to the winner’s pot.
Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience.
The presenter to secure the most votes goes home with all of the money raised at the door to carry out their project.
Previous Mossley SOUP dinners have raised winner’s pots of between £545 and £1,720 but all of the projects presented have benefitted in some way.
This includes increased public awareness, new volunteers, donations of materials and other financial support.
To be in with a chance of presenting your idea at the next Mossley SOUP dinner you will need to complete a short project proposal before Thursday, June 6. To submit a proposal online visit http://bit.ly/MossleySOUPapply
Mossley SOUP is organised by local resident volunteers with support from Mossley Town Council, the Mayor of Mossley and Emmaus Mossley.
