Welcome to Southend Soup
Southend Soup is based on Detroit Soup, a community micro-finance project.
For a donation of £5 you can come and enjoy a bowl of soup and listen to people from your community give a quick presentation on a proposal they would like to raise money for. When you have heard all the presentations, you get to vote on what you think will benefit your community most.
Alongside this at each event we have a range of people come to display their projects, or bring along things to sell and share. We encourage people to meet new people and chat, music is also central to us at each event. Children are always welcome and we have activities for them.
