Mossley SOUP gears up for first event of 2024

Mossley SOUP returns on Thursday 15 February for the town’s first community crowdfunding dinner of 2024 and everyone is invited to attend.

Mossley SOUP events bring the community together to raise awareness, funds and support for groups, businesses, projects and people with new ideas. The organising team is appealing for local residents to attend the next event, to give their support and vote for one of four presentations. 

For a recommended minimum donation of £5, diners receive a bowl of freshly made soup, hear four short project presentations and a vote for their favourite project. Each presenter has four minutes to share their project, followed by four questions from the audience. The presenter to secure the most votes receives all of the money raised on the door to help towards their project.

Since launching in 2017, Mossley SOUP has hosted fifteen events which have raised between £545 and £1,726 for each of the winning projects. Previous winning presentations were delivered by Mossley Community Centre, Mossley Social Club for Disabled Adults, Micklehurst Cricket Club Junior Section and Tameside People 4 Wildlife.

Everyone who presents at Mossley SOUP can benefit in other ways, such as increased public awareness, new volunteers, donations of materials and other offers of financial support. For event attendees, it’s a chance to find out what’s happening within Mossley, connect with fellow residents and help to make a positive impact.

The sixteenth Mossley SOUP dinner, sponsored by Premier Kia, will take place on Thursday 15 February from 6.15pm at Emmaus Mossley. As well as the four short presentations, the fun and inspiring event also includes live entertainment and a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses. 

Mossley SOUP is organised by volunteers with support from Emmaus Mossley, The Vale and a range of local businesses. For more details on the next event visit http://bit.ly/MossleySOUP.
