During the evening four local projects each deliver a four-minute pitch about their project, its community benefits and what the funding will support. Each pitch is then followed by four or five questions from the audience, and then the crowd votes. The winning project receives the takings from the door and pledges to share how they’ve used their funding at the next Soup.

​The first Bridport Soup was won by Community Youth Project (CYP). They walked away with £650 to boost their campaign to raise awareness of the Trick Factory’s need to relocate and their search for a new site. Joe Hewetsen from CYP said: “The real victory was creating a feeling of optimism and it is what we do with this momentum now that will be important as one event won’t bring back the Trick Factory.”
