Southend Soup is a community micro-funding and friendship scheme. It's part of the Sunday Soup global movement; made popular thanks to the success of Detroit Soup.
We run regular events, around the town of Southend-on-Sea, where people can present short pitches for small amounts of funding - usually for activities that benefit their neighbourhood. Up til now, Southend Soup has been small and informal.
We want to know what you like about what we do, and what else you think we could or should do. Please feel free to write as much or as little as you wish. We value your stories.
