Individuals and groups with ideas to help benefit Mossley are being invited to present them at the fourth Mossley SOUP community crowdfunding dinner.

Mossley SOUP is now appealing to local community groups, voluntary organisations, artists and individuals with a project idea they want to get off the ground.

The project can be anything; youth, sport, environmental, something creative or a new business start-up. The only criteria is that the project has to be of benefit to the Mossley community.

Mossley SOUP aims to bring people together to promote, fundraise and support local projects that benefit the people of Mossley. The fourth event is planned for Thursday, March 8, and will be held at Emmaus Mossley.

For a donation of £5, attendees receive tasty soup, entertainment, hear four project presentations and then vote for their favourite idea.

Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience. At the end of the night, the votes are counted and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project.

The first three Mossley SOUP dinners raised £670, £545 and £639 for each winning project.

To present your idea at the next Mossley SOUP dinner you will need to complete a short project proposal prior to the deadline of Thursday, February 15.

Mossley SOUP is organised by local resident volunteers with support from Mossley Town Council, The Mayor of Mossley and Emmaus Mossley. For more information and for details of future SOUP events head to
