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?
The raffle costs £1 per entry, and there are seven prizes on offer:
First Prize: £5,000 to spend on Landmark holidays.
Second Prize: 2 prizes of £1,000 to spend on Landmark holidays.
Third Prize: 4 prizes of £500 to spend on Landmark holidays.
Every ticket you buy will help rescue more buildings at risk whilst supporting the survival of traditional craft skills.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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.
