EVEN MORE PRIZES – Strong Island 5th Birthday Party & Charity Raffle

We’ve got even more prizes added, and here’s a further sneak peak of what’s been collected so far…plenty more to come!!!

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 in momentum isn’t an easy task but with the support we’ve had over the years it always seem to work 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 and record label, 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.

For all your support over the last 5 years we’d like to say a big thanks and invite you to our 5th Birthday Party on the 3rd October. Our good friends at Little Johnny Russells have agreed to let us hold the party at their pub on Albert Road, Southsea 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 a few freebies. If you came to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Birthday Raffles you’ll know they were a huge success, and we have raised close to £3000 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, Feel Yourself and Portsmouth Autism Support Network, with the winning numbers being drawn at the end of the night.

As always there will be a limited supply of free drinks on arrival as well as a background playlist supplied by Charlie from Longlive. We’re hoping Austin can make it be the compere, and when all the prizes have been handed out there will be an after party with a selection of Southsea finest playing us out with a DJ Mash Up Mix Party. For the lucky people who get in first there will also be a homemade Strong Island Birthday Cake from the awesome people over at Leaves Cuisine…

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that helps contribute 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. Please share this around as much as possible and see if we can hit capacity at LJRs.

We have already had some outstanding prizes donated and here’s a list of JUST SOME of what’s on offer…apologies if I’ve missed you it’s tricky keeping track of so much radness!
