Hello Soup Dragons

Guess who’s back, back again? It’s Sutton Soup! With another selection of local causes for you…

Sutton Cruse – support adults living in Sutton by providing bereavement support via telephone and information. They pitched at Sutton Soup 8 back in January 2018, when the service had just been set up by Rev Dave Dickinson of Trinity Church, Sutton. Cruse is well established in the borough now but rely on donations to continue to provide this invaluable service. Rev Dickinson has sent us a copy of their promotional flyer, with details of how to access the service and also how to donate. 

Playwise Learning CIC – based in Sutton Library, Playwise work with children in Sutton who have additional needs or a disability. They use the Portage model for their services, maximising opportunities, learning and development, to facilitate and enable and to have fun. Pam and Yvonne, who run the service, pitched at Sutton Soup 15 in October last year. You can meet them here, in this promotional video above.

Playwise has a vision of a world where the child is seen before their disability, and they and their community are enabled and inspired. You can help them to achieve this by donating. Have a look at their new website for more details:

Maggie’s at the Marsden – this centre, providing practical and emotional support to people dealing with the shock of a cancer diagnosis, was built just last year in the grounds of the Royal Marsden. They pitched at the last Sutton Soup in January, and we heard moving testimony from James, who had used the service, about the amazing work that they do. They have reacted to the current situation and now need your support more than ever, to fund their online community of psychologists, cancer support specialists and benefits advisors offering one to one phone, skype, facetime and email support. Please have a look at their fundraising page, and donate:

Look Good Feel Better – also connected to the Marsden, this nationwide charity ran sessions there helping people undergoing cancer treatment to manage the visible side effects by offering confidence-boosting workshops working on make-up and grooming skills. We had a wonderful pitch from them at Sutton Soup 10 back in July 2018 where the audience was so moved by the testimony of the difference the workshops had made, that they took the money on the night. These face to face workshops have had to stop due to lockdown, but the charity has acted swiftly in response and are now offering virtual workshops. Sadly it is predicted that, unless Look Good Feel Better can replenish their reserves of income through donations, this service will end in 2021. Here is a link to the workshops on their website, which also includes a donate button:
The Children’s Trust – for children with Brain Injury. The Children’s Trust is a national charity that have a specialist centre in Tadworth, offering vital support to many children in Sutton borough who have acquired brain injuries through accidents or illness. They pitched at Sutton Soup 12 in January of last year, and have asked us to pass on details of their Step Forward challenge. It’s a fun way to raise money by taking as many steps as you can, and you can get involved by taking part or donating:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. That will be all from us for a little while…we are still not quite sure when we will be back to see you for fun, food and fundraising. But as soon as we know, we will be in touch! Until then, take care.

All the best
