Good News,
it's a SOUP month.

We're so excited for our upcoming SOUP -- MARCH 26th!
We'd love to highlight a past SOUP project: Drake the Bookshop!
An Independent bookshop located on Silver street in Stockton, Drake The Bookshop not only provides our community with beautiful books, but they also want to bring more authors to Stockton’s lower-income schools with the desire to instil a love of reading and boost a creative spark. Last January they pitched at Stockton SOUP for funding and support to see more authors come to Stockton as well as provide the schools with a free class set of the author’s most recent book.
Since Drake's pitched last year, along with successful crowd funding, they were able to bring in the amazing children's author Nicola Davis AND give away 120  copies of The Day War Came to kids and 300 books to schools! They also partnered with Durham University to bring in author, Alex Wheatle, to read his book to 50 secondary students for their aspiration day.

The Arrival Medical Practice launched it’s cookbook at Drake’s, which has recipes provided by their patients who are asylum seekers and refugees.

At Christmas time Drake's worked in collaboration with the council to provide 175 books for looked after children.


They've had an exciting year! 
Drake's was voted Best Indie Bookshop in the north of England AND commended in the Best Small Shops Competition!
