Llandrindod SOUP next event
Thanks to everyone who came to SOUP at Holy Trinity Church in December – what a great night!
Our winner was Caroline who will use her £130 winnings to get materials and run a workshop to teach people how to make their own ‘moon pads’ ie menstrual wear. That pushed the total we’ve given away to almost £2,500! Amazing!!
So we’re taking a break for a while so that we can enjoy Christmas and New Year and take some time to think about how we can make it easier for people to apply to pitch.
If you’d like to pitch for funds at the next SOUP, to do something which will help in Llandrindod Wells or the surrounding villages CLICK HERE. If you want to get inspired why not look at the past winners of SOUP.
What is Llandrindod SOUP?
SOUP is a micro funding event, bringing together local people to support people with ideas that improve our community.
It’s a really simple concept, based on an idea that started in Detroit, and has since spread all over the world.
People donate a minimum of £3 to come along to an evening of live music and delicious soup. They listen to pitches from local people with ideas about how to make Llandrindod Wells and the surrounding villages a better place to live. Each pitch gets 4 minutes to win over the audience and the audience can ask the pitcher up to 4 questions about their idea. Whilst we eat our soup and listen to live local music, our audience decide which pitch they will vote for.
At the end of the night, the idea with the most votes takes away all of the donations to invest in their idea. Most winners walk away with between £100 and £200 and there’s usually a 1 in 4 chance of winning!
