It is Thurrock Soup time again


THURROCK Soup events aim to help inspire social enterprise and business ideas from Thurrock residents and offer advice and support in starting a new business and in identifying funding.

To take part, participants are invited to treat themselves to a bowl of tasty soup and a roll for £5, all of which goes into a pot. The £5 also gives people the chance to vote for their preferred idea.

Those with an inspirational idea get a chance to pitch to the group and then when everyone has voted on their favourite idea the winning entry receives all the £5 collected. Previous Soup winners have received £125-£180 to use towards setting up their business. Over £700 has been raised to date and has been used to help a number of new businesses start up already!

The next Thurrock Soup event will take place at 6.30pm on Thursday 15th February at Tilbury Hub, Tilbury Library, Civic Square RM18 8AD.

This event which is being hosted by Riverside Community Big Local (a National Lottery funded organisation) in partnership with Thurrock Council’s Economic Development team is open to all residents, businesses and voluntary sector organisations in Thurrock.
