SUTTON SOUP 5 - 27th April 2017
Dawn from Little Eden came back to tell us how she’s been spending the money she won in January. It was really lovely to see her and even more special because this time she was joined by her husband Glenn and their lovely son Tate, who is quite the chatterbox! The three of them together presented to us and we got to hear about the new things they’ve bought for their sensory garden.
Sutton Soup now seems to be really taking off with this, our fifth event, being the most successful yet. And we thought we couldn’t top January! We had loads of new people to Soup #5 (a big welcome if you were one of them) and raised £757.
Our pitchers on the night were:
All of the pitches were really good – a few even came in under the four minute time, which was very impressive! Our runaway winner, however, was Mollie from Clusters, who really captured the audience’s imagination with her vision of a day trip to Brighton for her members. She told us how some of them have never been to the seaside – we can’t wait to catch up with her in July and hear how they all got on.
Sutton Community Farm were with us again. Charlotte, from the farm, did a little presentation for us about their Community Share Offer – they need money to build a barn. If you weren’t there on the night to hear about this then please do have a look here and consider becoming a member of this worthy scheme that does so much for our local people.
A big thank you to Shirley and Graham from Feeling Good for the lovely music – Sutton Soup wouldn’t feel the same without you guys! Also special mention goes to the amazing Mary, from the Robin Hood Pub, who made vegetable soup for us to her mother’s recipe. Bread was, as ever, courtesy of The Bread Club. Massive thanks also to Eden Gardens & Fencing Ltd and Steve & Myriam Gelling Utility Warehouse for sponsoring this event. We couldn’t run Sutton Soup without our sponsors and we really appreciate your help!
Well, that’s a wrap for Sutton Soup 5! See you all in July for the sixth Soup.
