Why are we crowdfunding?

ARK is seeking funding to support the provision of a Soup and Social Warm Spaces drop in at our local village hall. This is a friendly and welcoming environment, that is open to anybody and will provide tea/coffee, biscuits and a choice of soup and rolls.

How we’ll spend the money raised

All money raised will be spent on the cost of running these sessions and hopefully expand on the offering. It will cover the cost of staff time, tea/coffee and biscuits, ingredients for the soup and rolls and activities for people to engage with.
