Lancaster Soup: Sat 9th January, The Juke Joint, Lancaster, 4pm

You are invited to Lancaster Soup – (a donation of £5 is asked for). There will be four (short) presentations from local projects who would like some funding and you can ask some questions about their ideas. Over soup you can discuss and debate the ideas. Then we will vote. The project that gets the most votes gets the funds collected on the night. Easy, simple and direct.

There will be some acoustic entertainment on the evening, some soup and good company.

If you want to pitch for funds for a project dear to your heart that would benefit people in Lancaster and Morecambe, then please get in touch. We’ve decided the first themes (Food for 9th January and Music for 13th February, after that people who attend can help us decide what to fund next).

Please let us know if you are coming, get in touch if you want to help or know more and SHARE with everyone and their pets, as the more people who come the more funds we can raise.

More information can be found on the Facebook page.

Lancaster University, Thursday 26th March 2015, 10.00-14.30

The UK Community Partner Network is an organisation dedicated to increasing the valued contributions of Higher Education institutions through their public engagement activities. The UCPN’s next regional event is being held at Lancaster University this week and will be of particular interest to social enterprises and community groups on campus.

The programme for the day includes advice sessions, workshops for individuals or groups wishing to form partnerships with universities and academics, and plenty of  opportunities to network with other community groups in the area. There is also opportunity for six individuals, or groups of researchers from across the University, to display their materials and information on their community activities.

If you require further information or have any questions, contact Professor Chris May at c.may@lancaster.ac.uk

Alternatively, if you would like to be involved in the event, contact Lindsey King at lindsey.king@lancaster.ac.uk
