About the event

SOUP DRAGON is a special event to be held at the Pippins Centre, coming soon - (original date postponed due to COVID-19 - we look forward to setting a new date shortly!)

It’s a fun merger of “Denver Soup” and “Dragons’ Den”, and you're invited to take part!

Denver Soup started in the USA as a funding source for community groups. People came together for a simple lunch, and then got to hear about local not-for-profit or start-up companies before voting on who should receive the money they’d paid for lunch. 

You may well be more familiar with TV’s Dragons Den, where a panel of millionaires consider whether to invest money into a series of business proposals. 

At SOUP DRAGON, representatives of three user groups from Pippins will each bid for funds. We have been offered some support from The Life Community for room rental, to supplement any donated food and to DOUBLE THE MONEY RECEIVED from attendees! 

Those who attend will be asked to contribute at least £5 for a simple lunch. After hearing the three short presentations, everyone gets to vote for who receives the lunch money! 

We are expecting to be able to give at least £100 to the winning group, but everyone goes home happy, as the other two groups also get a donation of £50 each! 

Tickets are only available in advance of the event and in limited numbers. They can be obtained from the Pippins office for a donation of £5 - contact us via to reserve and arrange collection or pop in to Pippins Community Centre.
