The Tytherington School Christmas Market held on November 30th raised an amazing sum of £1400, including a brilliant profit of £150 from the bar, which was run by the Parents of Tytherington School. The money will be used to purchase sports equipment for the school. The event was well-attended and great fun for all involved, especially those laden down with tombola and raffle prizes! As already reported, the queues for the bottle and chocolate tombola stalls stretched across and around the Refectory and never appeared to diminish.
The Parents of Tytherington School ran the drinks stall and sold raffle tickets at the school Pantomime on Tuesday December 19th (oh yes they did!). The sale of drinks, crisps and raffle tickets raised £260, which is another great contribution for the school.
Thank you to everyone who helped before, during or after these events and to those who donated items or parted with their cash to help our students.
Who are the “Parents of Tytherington School”?
We are a group of parents who help with school fundraising. During the last year we have donated money to the Learning Resource Centre, the drama department’s microphone system and the in-school counselling service. We are always looking for more volunteers to help out at fundraising events, or to come up with new ways of raising money for school. If you think you don’t have time for this, you can still support school fundraising by joining the Tytherington School lottery (details below). For more information you can get in touch with us by sending an email to email@example.com.
We will have more opportunities to raise money at events in the Spring Term. Keep checking this page for more details.
We will be holding the next Parents of Tytherington School meeting early in the Spring Term and the date will be published here once confirmed. If you would like to join us to find out how you can help to raise funds for the school, please do come along. All ideas and offers of assistance will be gratefully received! If you have any suggestions before then, please do contact us via email, using firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joining the Tytherington School Lottery
The Parents of Tytherington School run a lottery (which used to be called The 500 Club). All proceeds go to benefit school, after giving a percentage back to lottery members as cash prizes. Tickets cost £1 per month and, whilst you can join at any time, you must join for a minimum of one year (costing £12). Many of the current members have more than one ticket, paying £2 or £5 per month, for example.
Three lottery prizes are drawn each month. 1st prize is 25%, and 2nd and 3rd prize are each 10% of the total monthly ticket sales. Currently we sell about 150 tickets each month, so monthly prizes are £35 (1st) and £15 (2nd and 3rd). Prize winners are notified by email and prizes are paid out as cheques or via electronic transfer to the winner’s bank account.
There are two easy ways to join the lottery and there are no forms to complete:
If you use electronic banking, set up a Standing Order from your account to the Parents of Tytherington School account to pay your monthly lottery fee. To set this up, just send an email to email@example.com and we will email you our account number and sort code.
Send a cheque into the school Finance Office, payable to Parents of Tytherington School. If you would like one ticket per month, make it out for £12. For more tickets, make your cheque out for the appropriate total (eg £24, £36, and so on). Please write “Tytherington School lottery” on the back of your cheque, and include with it your name, postal address and email address.
Join today …. you could soon be a winner …. yes, it could be YOU! Thank you.
