A NEW community project Harlow SOUP is launching this February with a Crowdfunder campaign to kick-start this community crowdfunding idea.
Harlow SOUP is a series of community crowdfunding events that promote community development by raising money for new projects in Harlow, encouraging positive action and creating opportunities for new ideas. The remit is that each idea proposed should have a benefit to the local community.
The very first Harlow SOUP will take place on Thursday 22 February at Phoenix Live in the Town Centre and entrance is on a “pay what you can” basis with a suggested donation of £4. At the event, all attendees will listen to four different pitches from people wanting to make our community a better place whilst sharing a meal and listening to live music from local musicians.
At the end of the session, all attendees will vote on their favourite pitch and all money raised from the evening will be donated to the winning project.
The Harlow SOUP team has launched a crowdfunding page to help fund the event, with a need for items such as: utensils, soup warmers, voting booths and more.
Harlow SOUP is now open to applications for new community projects, which can be done via their website www.harlowsoup.co.uk or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winning projects will also be invited to attend the next event to speak about the success of their project and the benefits for Harlow.
