Dear Soup Dragons
Next Thursday, 23rd April would have been Sutton Soup #17 but because of the current outbreak of COVID 19, we all need to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
Our Soup has been deferred to our next date Thursday 9th July 2020 (http://suttonsoup.eventbrite.co.uk/) and we are hoping that by then the lockdown and restrictions will have been lifted to enable us to get back to work raising money for great local charities and community groups that serve the people of Sutton.
We could not run Sutton Soup without our sponsors. We have experienced the generosity of local businesses who have paid for our running costs and allowed us to guarantee that every pound raised at each Sutton Soup goes to the winning good cause. These businesses are at the heart of our community and now those businesses are facing massive disruption and anxiety. These businesses are our friends and local heroes and we proudly display their logos on our website: http://www.suttonsoup.org.uk/sponsors.html
Starting on Monday, we shall be launching a social media campaign to shout out our thanks to these businesses that have played their part in helping make Sutton the kinder, better community we all want it to be. We want everyone who can, to please support these businesses. That means we would like you to follow our Facebook pages, Twitter and Instagram accounts and as we post we would like you to share so that the wave of thanks gets echoed as widely possible. Our local businesses have helped us, now please help us to help them.
Thanks for reading.
