Well, we’ve done it! The grand total of funds raised at Sutton Soup 9 broke through the four figure barrier and came in at an absolutely amazing £1040.
A huge, huge thank you to everyone – our best attendance ever at 175 people - who came along to help us raise this record breaking amount, and to our sponsors for the evening, who were Sainsbury’s, Cheam Financial Planning, Digum and Suremind.
Just in case you couldn’t make it on the night, here’s a recap of the pitches for you:
It was a good mix of pitchers and a very difficult choice for some, but in the end the money went to Penny and the Dreaming Tree Project. She said it would go straight to buying a radio aid for a deaf little boy who really needs it and she will be back in July to let us know how it went.
Speaking of which, we heard from Astrid at the Family Learning Hub how they have been spending the £970 they won at Soup 8. Lots of fun has been had, including a trip to the theatre! Thanks for coming back Astrid, it was great to hear from you.
Will we match this incredible total raised when we stage Soup 10 in July? We can but hope!
See you then for more fun and fundraising.
