To raise awareness of the plight of The Madeira Terraces, concerned residents of Kemptown have got together via Facebook and organised a Grand Raffle and Auction with the aim of raising £20k towards the ‘Save Madeira Terraces’ fund.
Derek Wright, Jax Atkins and other local residents have led an awareness and clean-up campaign encouraging other residents and businesses alike to support them. This group already organises monthly de-weeding and clean up days to ensure the Terraces are not forgotten or neglected.
It was a natural next step to get the whole community involved with the raffle. Local business have given over 250 prizes so far and are also selling the £1 raffle tickets. The raffle will be drawn at The Cricketers Pub, Black Lion Street on the November 24, from 5pm-8pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Those not using Facebook should lookout for posters in pubs, cafes and bars saying ‘Save Madeira Terrace Raffle Buy Your Raffle Tickets Here’. Some gay owned establishments are also selling them.
