London Eye raffle grants finance for students

Through a raffle, the Architectural Association is hoping to provide the most romantic setting for Valentine’s Day next month at the latest edition to London’s skyline.

Two tickets on the British Airways London Eye are the prize for the competition, which aims to raise money and provide financial assistance for students.

But a series of setbacks and concerns about safety has meant the first ride on the wheel has yet to take place. The Architectural Association is confident the 135m high wheel will be fully operational by 14 February, but says the winners can use the tickets at a later date if necessary.

Maybe it will be ready for Valentine’s Day 2001.
