Blackmore’s Night prizes in charity lottery

Blackmore's Night

A Village Lanterne CD, autographed by Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night, is one of several prizes at a charity raffle being held in Kent (UK), on the 21st July 2007. British Academy of Dance and Drama (B.A.D.D.) Productions, together with 14 other youth drama/theatre groups in the Maidstone/North Kent area, are attempting to raise £100,000 by June 2008, for the Macmillan Cancer Trust.

The ultimate goal of this campaign is to see the establishment of a dedicated Chemotherapy Unit, at Medway Hospital, Kent (UK), which will cost approximately £4,000,000. If the youth drama groups reach their target £100,000 total, Macmillan has promised to add £300,000 to that total, from their main fund. The local government authorities will also then, add £600,000 to that total. The NHS Trust has said, once they see that first £1,000,000 raised, they will add the remaining £3,000,000 to the fund.

The Blackmores Night CD, will appear as part of the selection of charity Raffle prizes, at the B.A.D.D. production of “Alice in Wonderland”, taking place at New Brompton College, Gillingham, Kent, on the 21st July 2007. The Czech medieval band Gothien, have also donated an autographed CD.

The Blackmores Night CD was autographed backstage on the recent UK Tour. There will also be the usual assortment of everyday Raffle prizes that one might expect. If fans would like to buy one or more raffle tickets, priced at 50 pence each, please send a cheque or crossed postal order (payable to B.A.D.D.) to the following address:
