Steeple Morden PTA
We are very fortunate to have an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), who run a number of fundraising events through the year providing extra fun and activities for the children to enrich their learning.
Steeple Morden Primary Lottery Club
INTRODUCING THE 2021/2022 STEEPLE MORDEN PRIMARY LOTTERY CLUB
We are delighted to invite you to join our school Lottery Club – a great way for you to help support fundraising efforts for our school as well as having a chance to win a cash prize each month!
What is the Steeple Morden Primary Lottery club?
The Steeple Morden Primary Lottery Club is a private lottery and is open to all parents, grandparents, staff and friends of Steeple Morden Primary School, aged 16 or over.
How does it work?
Your annual subscription of £12 will buy you a number for the year. The numbers are entered into a monthly draw (giving a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize), 12 draws in total (October-September). Plus 2 additional bonus draws in June and December.
40% of the membership money taken will be allocated as prize money, the other 60% will be allocated to the school PTA fund. For example, if we have 200 members, £80 will be allocated as prize money per month and the remaining £120 will help fund various school projects, enhancing the children’s experience at Steeple.
The more members we have – the higher the cash prize fund each month – and the more money we raise for our school (everybody is a winner).
The draws will take place on the last Friday of each month during school hours by Mrs How witnessed and assisted by the children. Winners will be contacted by the PTA and winnings will be paid directly into winners’ bank accounts limiting the need to exchange cash/cheques. The names of the winners will be published in The Star, on the school’s website and on the PTA Facebook page.
