Speaking of which, we had a lovely catch up with the Home-Start Sutton team. Judith told us about how they spent the money they won last time, we got to meet some parents who had used the service and then became volunteers, and we heard back from Andrea, who had moved the audience to tears at Soup 15 back in October.
Hello Soup Dragons
What a remarkable evening Sutton Soup 16 was! We raised £1502.50, jointly through the money taken on the door and the generosity of our sponsors, who were: Condell Ltd, Ace Accountancy Services and Predator Pest Solutions.
Here’s a reminder of who pitched:
They were all excellent pitches, but the winners of the amazing £1502.50 were Lu and Get On Downs. Huge congratulations to them,
and we look forward to catching up at the next Soup.
Pam from Playwise CIC also popped along to let us know that although she didn’t win at the last Soup, two audience members had actually privately paid for the ‘My Gaze’ eye tracker that she had pitched for, and we got to meet one of them, Michael, who spoke about how much it meant to him to be able to help. This was amazing to hear and we couldn’t be happier for Pam and everyone at Playwise.
A true testament to the power of Soup!
Finally, thank you so much to Sainsbury’s Sutton store for providing all the ingredients for the soup and bread we enjoyed,
and to the team at Shinner & Sudtone for cooking the soup. It was delicious!
Massive thanks to everyone who came along to help us raise all that money! See you at Soup 17 on 23rd April.
