First ever SOUP
Ely Milks were the well deserved winners at our first ever SOUP.
Ely Milks is a local breastfeeding support group. They offer support to mums with breastfeeding problems, as well as a friendly place to come and meet other breast feeding mums and feel supported in their feeding choices. They are completely self-funding and receive no regular donations.
Tara Bungard, from Ely Milks, said: “We are thrilled to have won, and the money will be put to very good use keeping our group running and benefiting our local mums.”
On the night we heard from 3 other fabulous projects – Ely Foodbank who wanted money for food to continue to support people in crisis; Ely library wanted funding for its children’s Lego group; and Ely Ukulele Club who wanted money to start a group in the city.
The audience had a tough decision; each pitch they heard truly benefited the community of Ely. But we are delighted that Ely Milks were able to take home the £185 raised on the night
