Southend Soup is:
– A place where the Southend community comes together to have fun, to share soup (vegan and nut free) and to grow their ideas for Making Good Stuff Happen. Events are suitable for the whole family. On your own? Come along and make new friends.

– About hearing a few presentations (5 minutes) from people or small groups needing a small amount of funding to Make Good Stuff Happen. Ideas can be of benefit to the community, or related to the arts or business. We all vote for our favourite idea, and that idea gets a pot of money.

Funding comes from donations you pay to join in. We ask for £5 or what you can afford/want to pay. Kids are free unless they wish to donate some of their pocket money! Your donation entitles you to soup, bread and beverages as well as a vote.

Soup people make the event. Bring anything entertaining (we often have musicians, magicians and face-painting) and any crafts you want to sell, or information/stuff you wish to share.
As this is our Christmas* Party help us create a lively and happy atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.

Need volunteers over the winter months? We can provide you with an information stall and give you a chance to talk about what you need.

Collecting shoeboxes (or similar) for foodbank customers, homeless people or those in hospital over Christmas? Let us know in advance. We’ll ask Soupers to bring things along for you to collect.

Contact SherryFuller@Hotmail.co.uk (please put Southend Soup in the subject field.)

This soup is hosted by our good friends at Southend Association of Voluntary Services. We’re very grateful for their ongoing support.

To submit an idea for funding, go here:http://southendsoup.co.uk/submit-a-good-idea/

* Southend Soup is secular. We love a party at Christmas, and we welcome people of every faith and none. We also recognise that Christmas can be an extremely difficult time for a great many people. We hope that everyone will feel welcome at this and all our events. If this is a hard time of year for you, please come along. We can connect you with others – including services if need be – that could help.
