LOCAL PROJECTS SEEK SUPPORT AT MOSSLEY SOUP

LOCAL PROJECTS SEEK SUPPORT AT MOSSLEY SOUP

Four varied projects that aim to benefit the Mossley community are seeking support at the next Mossley SOUP event on Thursday 4 October.

Mossley SOUP aims to bring the community together to promote, fundraise and support local projects that benefit the people of Mossley. For a donation of £5, diners receive soup, bread, hear four project presentations and then vote for their favourite idea.

Each presenter will get four minutes to share their idea and an opportunity to answer four questions from the audience. The winning project idea receives all of the money raised on the night to carry out their project.

The sixth Mossley SOUP dinner is planned for Thursday 4 October from 6.30pm at Longlands Mill on Queen Street, home to Emmaus Mossley.

The event will also include guest speakers, live music from Jon Mambo and Night Host, and a raffle with a great selection of prizes donated by local businesses.

Past Mossley SOUP dinners have raised between £545 and £930 for each of the winning projects. All of the projects that have been presented at Mossley SOUP have benefitted in some way. This includes increased public awareness, new volunteers, donations of materials and other financial support.

Mossley SOUP is organised by local resident volunteers with support from Mossley Town Council, The Mayor of Mossley and Emmaus Mossley.
