A fundraiser for a heritage houses charity is offering up to £5,000 of free weekend breaks in its homes across the UK.

The charity, the Landmark Trust takes over run-down buildings and turns them into holiday homes, so that anyone can spend a weekend in them. Fancy long weekends away in follies and gatehouses, family adventures in castles and forts or sharing time with friends at a country escape?

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Just a comment that when you go to the payment page despite the tickets being £1.00 each the default setting is for £12 of tickets. It doesn’t want to accept a credit card payment for less.

      I had no problem buying fewer than 12 tickets – and you’re not allowed to use a credit card to buy raffle tickets in the UK, so you have to use a debit card.

    Payment not a problem with a debit card
