A TWO-WEEK cruise to Portugal and a whale-watching trip are just two of the prizes that can be won in a Big Christmas Raffle backed by two city institutions.

The New Theatre Royal and Mary Rose Trust have set up a joint raffle with proceeds going towards a new Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard and the restoration of the stage-house, fly-tower and dressing rooms along with a new creative learning centre at the theatre.

Fiona Wilson, from the NTR, said: ‘Local organisations have very kindly donated some wonderful prizes to us, so we hope to sell lots of tickets.’

Tickets costing £1 can be bought from the theatre or the trust, with the grand draw taking place at the theatre at 7pm on December 17.
