Fullbridge Church, 27 Fullbridge, Maldon   CM9 4LE
Come along to hear three great community ideas and vote for your favourite. £5 donation on the door with the winning idea taking home the money Crowdfunding is becoming increasingly popular as a way people and charities can raise money, allowing people to give small amounts of money to contribute to a larger target. An innovative approach to Crowdfunding is “Soup”. Starting in Detroit in America there are now over 100 “Soups” in the UK and it has now launched in Maldon. Members of the local community are invited to attend an event, usually held in the evening, where they give a donation of a minimum of £5 for a bowl of homemade soup. During the event three local groups are invited to give short presentations on their activities in the community to pitch for a contribution from the donations at the door. Attendees can then vote and the groups walk away with the money in their pocket to spend on local causes..
Cost: £5
