Sally Rooney, Deborah Levy, more share prizes for #KillTheBill fundraiser

The upcoming raffle for Sisters Uncut and Gypsy, Roma and Traveller groups also includes prizes from Caleb Femi, Olivia Laing, Reni Eddo-Lodge, and Candice Carty-Williams

Sally Rooney, Deborah Levy, and more than 100 other contributors — including authors, poets, and independent publishers — have shared prizes for an upcoming #KillTheBill fundraiser.

Raising funds for Sisters Uncut and three grassroots Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller activist groups — Traveller Pride, The York Travellers Trust and Dikhlo Collective — the raffle will be drawn at a live event on May 14, beginning at 7pm via Zoom.

Hosted by writer and organiser Lola Olufemi, the event will also feature live and recorded performances, and short talks on what we can do to stop the passage of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. Proposed amendments to the bill, which would restrict our right to protest, have already prompted impassioned protests up and down the country.

Olivia Laing, Dazed 100 alum Caleb Femi, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Candice Carty-Williams, Max Porter, and Eliza Clark are also among the writers contributing prizes for the raffle, including signed books, rare proofs, and hand-painted editions. Other prizes include personalised poems and a writing session with The Water Cure’s Sophie Mackintosh.

Raffle tickets are £2 each, up to a maximum of £20 for 10 (though donations over £20 are also welcome). Find more information about the fundraiser, and get free tickets to the May 14 event, here.
