Reading Soup is a grassroots, community fundraising group. We support community projects in the Reading area. We’re inspired by the original Detroit SOUP, and are run by a committee of five volunteers to hold fundraising dinners in Reading every other month.

How does Reading Soup work?

£5 gets you soup, art, music and a vote.

£5 entry
Everyone makes a £5 donation to the pot when they arrive

Eat soup
You get a bowl of delicious soup, home-made by our talented chefs…

The pitches
… and hear three Reading community projects pitch for their cause

After the pitches, you vote for the project you want to receive the donation

Who wins?
The winning project receives all of the money in the donation pot

At every event we have live music and exhibitions from brilliant local artists
