The Parents of Tytherington School held their first meeting of 2018 on Wednesday 14th March at school, immediately after the Parents’ Forum meeting. We discussed lots of great fundraising ideas and made plans for supporting the school’s Spring Concert on Tuesday 27th March.
The Spring Concert took place tonight and the Parents of Tytherington School ran the drinks stall and held an Easter-themed competition to guess the number of chocolate eggs in the jar. We raised a fantastic total of £140 for the school, so “Thank you” to all who attended the Concert and contributed to this success.
The Parents of Tytherington School are delighted to be donating some of the funds raised to purchase high quality recycling bins and basketball equipment for general use during break times.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be raising more money when we run the “bar” at the Fashion and Fizz evening at school on 10th May. Do join us for a drink!
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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
