We have set up a school lottery. This lottery has been set up specifically to raise money and make a difference for our children! We intended to launch the lottery before the Coronavirus pandemic hit us and therefore we understand that this is not a great time financially for people but we really appreciate your support.
It's a fantastic way to bring Parents, Carers, Teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with our school, and at the same time give something back. We hope to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of our children - we aim to provide extra resources for the children, improve the school environment as well as run extracurricular activities such as music, art and sport. We are currently fundraising towards the provision of sensory areas in and around our school to promote children's wellbeing.
The first weekly draw for the lottery will be Saturday 26th September 2020 providing we can sell 50+ tickets. Please see the attached documents which explain how it works and there is a link in the launch a lottery document to click on if you wish to sign up. Tickets are £1.00 per week.
Please feel free to share this with your family/friends/colleagues or anyone that you feel may be interested in joining our school lottery. If you sign up before 18th July you could also win a £150 JD Sports Gift Card!
Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!
