On Saturday 8th July, Alan Gloak participated in a SOUP! charity event, a slightly gentler version of the Dragon’s Den. Four charities each tell the audience (who have paid a £5 entrance fee which includes a bowl of soup!) about a particular project to help local people.

TS5C was delighted to be presented with a cheque for £110 from Shobee Chant from Chubb Bullied who sponsor the event.
