Bradford Community SOUPNews

Virtual SOUP

On Thursday 20th August we gathered online for our first virtual SOUP. Although missing being able to sure delicious soup and bread together, Soraya from Cooking @ The Storehouse shared a delicious soup recipe with us.

We heard three excellent and worthwhile pitches:

  • Bradford City Deaf Football Club: football club for players who are deaf or have hearing impairments. Pitching for funds for equipment for their football matches.
  • Friends of Myrtle Park, Bingley: volunteer group maintaining and nurturing Myrtle Park in the centre of Bingley. Pitching for funds for welcome boards at the park entrances.
  • The Principle Trust: children’s charity providing respite breaks to local underprivileged and disadvantaged children from North and West Yorkshire, particularly children with life limiting conditions, disabilities, or those facing financial hardship, trauma  or stress. Pitching for funds to equip a caravan for children’s respite holidays.

After everybody’s donations and votes had been counted, Bradford City Deaf FC took home £250, with Friends of Myrtle Park and The Principle Trust taking home £125 each.

The next SOUP event is on 19th November 2020 and is likely to be online again.
