Strong Island 4th Birthday & Charity Raffle – Contributors Prize Update (Ongoing so keep checking)

For all your support over the last 4 years we’d like to say a big thanks and invite you to our 4th Birthday Party on the 4th of October. Our good friends at The Belle Isle have agreed to let us hold another little social at their bar on Osborne Road and we’d be stoked if you could join us.

There will be a Charity Raffle with prizes from a variety of local artists, photographers, retailers, friends and much more besides, as well as a few freebies. If you came to the 2nd and 3rd Birthday Raffles you’ll know they were a huge success, and we have raised over £1400 for the Portsmouth RNLI and Portsmouth Autism with over 200 people in attendance each time.

There will be raffle tickets for sale on the night for £1 each, or £8 for 10 and ALL proceeds will go towards the Portsmouth RNLI and Portsmouth Autism, with the winning numbers being drawn at the end of the night.

As always there will be a limited supply of free Strong Island Ice Teas on arrival as well as a background playlist supplied by Pet Sounds. Have a peek at last year’s very successful event HERE.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that helps & contributes to Strong Island in one way or another. We really couldn’t have made it this far without our readers, friends, contributors & the people who make Portsmouth and Southsea what it is. It’s hard to believe we’ve have been going since 2008. So much has happened in such a short space of time. Juggling our day jobs whilst trying to keep Strong Island growing isn’t an easy task but with the support we’ve had over the years it always works out. From putting on our Raffle and Christmas parties, to setting up exhibitions and events, running competitions and even setting up a small clothing line, the help we’ve received over the years is immensely appreciated. We hope in some way that doing these little events shows our debt of gratitude to everyone.

We have already had some outstanding prizes donated and here’s a list of what’s on the table so far:
