Bath Soup Project 

What is Bath Soup Project?

 

Originating in Detroit, Bath Soup Project is a crowd-funding event for community projects.  The next event will be in 2018 TBC

The concept is simple, it’s a minimum of £5 to attend for everyone (you can donate more if you wish) and the purpose of the evening is watch five people pitch an idea to improve their local community.

Once the ideas have been pitched everyone gets a bowl of soup to eat plus a chance to chat and mull over which pitch they want to vote for. When the votes have been counted the winner will receive all the cash raised on the night to go ahead and start their project.

The event aims to bring together people who share a desire for a better community. The added advantage is they also get to meet people and share ideas and resources. New connections are made and it brings the community closer together.

We aim to be a safe place where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together to share a common interest in improving their local community and bring people together who want to make a difference, engage others, have fun, be creative and make connections with their neighbours.
