Dear Friends of Madeira Terrace, As you know, the crowdfunding campaign is now over but the restoration project is very much alive and ongoing. Due to the number of people coming forward and asking to donate money after the crowdfunding deadline, we have now set up a Madeira Terrace Restoration fund. Anyone wishing to make a donation can easily do so, by: • Online payment via the Brighton & Hove City Council website: https://www.civicaepay.co.uk/BHCC/WEBPAY_PUBLIC/WEBPAY/default.aspx • Debit or credit card over the telephone: 01273 292641 • Cheque posted to VisitBrighton, Brighton Town Hall, Bartholomew Square, Brighton, BN1 1JA or in person at Brighton Centre Box Office (please include, Madeira Terrace Restoration fund on the back of your cheque) Please do share this news through your networks as every penny raised will help us reach our goal of repairing and restoring the whole terrace. This month local brewer Brighton Bier (http://www.brightonbier.com/mabiera.html) launched special pale ale, Mabeira, and 25% of profits from the sale of Mabeira will go into the restoration fund. Thank you Brighton Bier! You can read more about Mabeira here: http://www.brightonbier.com/mabiera-media-release.html The story has attracted widespread coverage – in local media as well as a plethora of beer industry titles, so a great start in keeping the Madeira Terrace story alive as well as demonstrating the benefits for businesses in being part of the ongoing campaign! Jax Atkins, organiser of the Grand Community Raffle, that raised over £16,000 and attracted over 600 prizes, is planning another one! Jax is busy collecting prizes so if you would like to donate something, please do get in touch with her: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07952-011-577 And finally, to ensure the terraces are kept clear of litter and given some extra tlc before work on the arches start, a group of residents – led by Jax Atkins and Derek Wright - has organised their next clean-up session for Saturday 17 February. If you’d like to take part, please email Jax or Derek for more details: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org If you have any fundraising ideas, would like to hold a fundraising event or are interested in finding out how you can become more involved in future plans, please do get in touch: email@example.com We’ll send more news, including the activities planned on Madeira Drive for English Tourism Week, next month. Best wishes The Madeira Terrace project team.
