Opportunity to hear from local projects and help bring about change in the community
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.
Social entrepreneurs aren’t that different from other people making things happen; they take their passions, motivations and enthusiasm and create a business.
In the video clip above, UnLtd Award winner, Rosie Ginday, discusses how her passion for cooking has evolved into a successful social enterprise, supporting the rehabilitation of offenders and disadvantaged individuals with employment and training.
What are your passions and hobbies? Maybe the traditional entrepreneurial path does not inspire you to take the plunge and create your own career; would your motivations change, however, if you knew that you were making a difference to other people’s lives and supporting them to find a better future?
If your answer is yes, absolutely – why not come along to the “Are U a social innovator?” event during Make It Happen? You’ll meet other people already making a difference in the North West and learn what social challenges are felt most acutely in the area. You might even find other students to collaborate with to start making things happen whilst your at University. Sign up via Target Connect to secure your place.
