Lifeline Community Ambulance C.I.C. secured the most votes at the latest Mossley SOUP event, receiving £1,031 raised by event attendees.

On Thursday 27th October, Mossley SOUP volunteers welcomed over 120 diners to Emmaus Mossley for their thirteenth event, sponsored by Premier Kia. Diners donated £5 each in return for soup, entertainment, presentations from four local projects and a vote.

Live music welcomed diners as they took their seats and enjoyed freshly made soup and bread. Four project presentations followed, each having four minutes to share their idea followed by four questions from the audience.

The projects were Wellbeing and Remembrance Area by students of Mossley Hollins High School, Mossley Litter Summit by members of Mossley Litter Bugs, Blowin’ In The Wind by local resident Win Ashmore, and Lifeline Community Ambulance C.I.C.

After the presentations, diners cast their votes, a fundraising raffle was drawn and then the winning project was announced. Lifeline Community Ambulance secured the most votes and received £1,031 raised from donations on the door, the raffle and £100 from Premier Kia.

For the first time ever at Mossley SOUP, thanks to an increased sponsorship donation from Premier Kia, three runners up also received £100 towards their projects.

Project ideas are being sought from individuals, artists, community groups, charities and businesses for the next Mossley SOUP event scheduled for 23 February 2023. To find out more and submit a proposal, head to
