Our Place gets a helping of Soup
Published on: 27 Oct 2017
THE second Downend Soup community crowdfunding event proved a sellout again, with the audience finding it tough to choose between the three organisations seeking cash.
These were Frampton Festival, Adoption Support and the eventual winners Our Place Community Flat, who received £430 to support their lunch club, job seekers club and activities to help social isolation. The evening was rounded off with a performance from local singer-songwriter Gav Ball.
Organiser Ian Browne said: “Once more the community and businesses of Downend and surrounding areas came out to show they care about making a difference – a thoroughly enjoyable evening and an opportunity for everyone to change our little part of the world.”
At the first Downend Soup in March this year, the funding went to Mothers4Mothers. Downend Soup will return on March 6. Applications to pitch at the next event can be made through www.downendsoup.com
