Levy Soup is …
A way of promoting community based activity through a creative “crowdfunding” event.
Come along and you’ll get to share a home-made Soup dinner with new and old friends. (Plus the chance to network and have a dance too). There is a paying bar at the venue.
Levy Soup has been set up to celebrate and support creative projects in Levenshulme that benefit the local community.
For a suggested donation of £5 attendees receive a bowl of veggie soup, some bread and a vote. During the evening you will hear pitches from people who want to do something in Levenshulme.
For the first “Soup” we have chosen the theme of food so if you have a food based idea or project that you would like to have funded then this is for you.
Each presenter has four minutes to pitch their idea and answer four questions from the audience.
At the event, people eat, talk, share ideas and then vote on the project they think benefits Levenshulme the most. At the end of the night the winner goes home with all of the money raised in the evening to carry out their project.
The first Levy Soup event will take place on October 8th, 19.00 at the Klondyke (1 Burnage Range).
Everyone is welcome to attend– no matter where you live you can share in this experience.

What can I bid for?
It’s up to you!! Maybe a tea and tech group for older people; a Xmas party for young people leaving care, a community growing project, a raised bed for vegetable growing, a popcorn and film night for kids – these are only examples- the options are endless and we hope bidders will be really creative! The only rule is that the people who benefit should be in Levenshulme.
All you need at this stage is an idea – We’ve made the process as simple as possible and we’ll also be able to help you think about how to present your pitch. No PowerPoint presentations allowed!
