University SOUP

And the winner is …. Bloodbikes

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our first birthday SOUP at Exeter University such a success. We were really pleased to be part of this year’s Grand Challenges at Exeter University. The event had a brilliant turnout, over 40 people, and with so many people helping out in the kitchen and in the organizing before hand this was the easiest and smoothest running SOUP yet. I was especially grateful to the chief from the Terrace Restaurant who oversaw our use of the kitchen and improved the leek soup with expert seasoning.

And the winner is “Dining in the Dark”

Thank you to everyone who came along to the forth ExeterSOUP. It was fantastic to see so many people there and to hear about some of the brilliant work of local groups in Exeter. Find out even more about the causes here.

Voters at SOUP decided to fund Dining in the Dark who walked away with £110 to spend on their project. They will update us in 6 months time so that we can hear about the difference our money made. We also raised £17.50 in donations for St Sidwell’s to contribute towards the running of the Community Centre.
