SOUP is a powerful tool to start conversations, enjoy yourself and improve where you live.
Wells SOUP is our city’s quarterly micro-granting lunch which launched with great success in Seager Hall on Union Street in April 2016. It raises money (up to £700 each time) and profile for local charities and good causes that benefit the city and people of Wells, as well as providing an opportunity to make new contacts.
Established in Detroit in 2010 and successfully used in many other places since, SOUP is a brilliant way to help improve where we live.
The projects that get funded are up to you.
It is about bringing people together, having fun and supporting projects that benefit the community.
At the end of each SOUP event, the audience can give their feedback to help the organisers set up future SOUPs, which will happen every two or three months.
