THE 10TH Mossley SOUP community crowdfunding dinner in support of projects benefiting the town takes place next Thursday (February 27).

Organisers are appealing for residents to support, attend and cast their vote at the evening event from 6.15pm at Longlands Mill, home to Emmaus Mossley.

The initiative aims to bring the community together to promote, fundraise and support local projects.

For a donation of £5, diners receive freshly made soup, bread, hear four project presentations and then vote for their favourite idea.

Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and an opportunity to answer four questions from the audience. The project idea to secure the most votes receives all of the money raised on the night to carry out their project.

Past Mossley SOUP dinners have raised between £545 and £1,726 for each of the winning projects. All of the projects that have been presented at Mossley SOUP have benefitted in some way. This includes increased public awareness, new volunteers, donations of materials and other financial support.

The dinner is sponsored by Tameside Rotary.

As well as the four short presentations, the event will also include guest speakers, live music and a fundraising raffle.

Mossley SOUP is organised by volunteers with support from local businesses and organisations. For more details on the next event visit
