The Madeira Terraces crowdfunder has just passed the £300,000 mark with another big donation from a Brighton Marina developer, bringing the total to almost 3/4 of the target with just 17 days to go.
Property developers Landsec pledged £15,000 to the appeal this lunchtime, pushing the tally to £309,912. This follows another donation of £25,000 four days ago from PMC Construction.
And Brighton and Hove News understands more big donations may be in the pipeline.
Most of the total pledged so far has been in donations of more than £2,000 from companies – apart from one anonymous donation of £10,000 and £5,000 from Brighton Pier boss Luke Johnson.
