Tongwynlais Primary School Launches Fundraising Lottery

School lottery header

Friends of Tongwynlais Primary School have launched an online lottery to raise money for the school.

A ticket costs £1 per week and all funds raised go directly to the school. Each ticket will also enter you in two draws:

  1. A jackpot prize draw for £25,000
  2. A local draw with a guaranteed prize for one of the supporters of our school. The size of the prize will depend on the number of tickets bought for the school that week

The competition is run by a company called “Your School Lottery” and there is more information on their website about how the lottery works. The school gets 40p per entry, 37p is used to support the prizes and the remaining 23p is used to administer the lottery itself.

Headteacher Mrs Phillips says, “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 extra curricular activities such as music, art and sport. Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!”

The first draw will take place on Saturday 12 March 2016.

The Friends of Tongwynlais have a Facebook group and would love more parents to join.
