Next Draw – January 2021
Steamship Shieldhall Charity is now offering a further way to support Southampton’s award winning heritage steamship with the introduction of a 50:50 Lottery, open to all and with attractive monthly prizes. The first draw will take place in early December with a minimum first prize of at least £500. By keeping administration of the Lottery in house we are able to maximise returns for our supporters with 50% of the money raised being returned as prizes and 50% going to keep Shieldhall alive and steaming.
Shieldhall Trustee James Robson noted. “We are constantly looking at ways to keep Shieldhall operational and meet the rising costs of maintenance including annual dry docking. This year has been particularly difficult with our sailing programme cancelled due to Covid 19. Our volunteers continue to work hard to prepare the ship for a full programme of sailings in 2021 and with the support of our sponsors we can look forward to brighter days ahead. Our supporters are already showing a willingness to get behind the Lottery which promises to be a great success and an important source of funding. We would encourage everyone to take a look at our new website www.ss-shieldhall.co.uk., join the Lottery, sign up friends and family and explore the many ways to support Shieldhall including the opportunity to purchase 2021 sailings at special “early bird” rates.”
