This is called the Soup Dragon’s Den.
The Soup Dragon’s Den is aimed at small local community groups who need a small amount of funding to help them get going, or to grow the project to reach more people.
To apply, applicants simply need to complete the below application form.
All applications received will be reviewed and six will be shortlisted to present their pitch at the Soup Dragon’s Den event.
The Soup Dragon’s Den event will have an open invitation for local residents and supporters of each project to attend.
The evening will start with soup being served, allowing time for attendees to socialise and get to know each other. This will be followed by the applicants presenting their pitch; similar to the TV show Dragon’s Den (but much friendlier).
Once all the pitches have taken place, everyone attending the event will be asked to vote, ranking each of the six pitches in their order of preference.
The votes will be counted and the winner announced at the end of the evening.
The winning applicant can win up to £1000.
The other five pitches can win up to £200 or half of what they applied for.
