This week, on Our Time of Gifts, I sat down with about 40 others, to London Soup.
I’d heard about about the lunch/dinner (linner? dunch?) from some dear old friends, who had volunteered to cook the meal. Their culinary skills are exemplary, and the event sounded interesting. So I needed little persuasion to go along.
Over the course of a couple of hours, we listened and watched as four different acts told us about their plans to make a difference. We paid £10 each, which was put (minus the small amount of expenses for the event) towards a micro-funding pot. We discussed which project we thought might make best use of the money. And then, we voted.
