Colyton Grammar School Parents’ Association is pleased to announce the return of its registered monthly draw club. We hereby invite you all to join the CGSPA 500 Club!
This is a simple system, similar to a lottery, that is easy to join and intended as a little bit of light fun, while contributing funds to the PA’s coffers. We have enlarged the club so that 500 numbers will be available for purchase and will be entered each month into a draw for tax-free cash prizes.
The 500 Club will have 10 monthly draws between October 2020 and July 2021, each with a top prize of £100 and five runners up prizes of £25 each. With 60 prizes up for grabs each year this gives a far higher chance of winning than most charity lotteries, and will result in a total prize pot of £2,250!
Entries must be paid in advance via an annual subscription of £20 (that’s just £2 per draw – less than a takeaway coffee!), paid through the school ParentPay system, or by cheque if necessary. The application forms will be live on the ParentPay system from 1st Sept 2020 and the closing date for entries is Weds 30th Sept 2020.
Log in to your ParentPay account and buy your numbers as you top up your child’s food account!
Since this club is registered with the Local Council Authority, we are able to invite anyone to join, and each person may apply for as many subscriptions as they wish, so please do share this news with family, friends and neighbours. It is an ideal opportunity for family members who live further afield to join the CGS community, and have a little fun each month too!
Proceeds from this club will be going directly to Colyton Grammar School, to help achieve their goal of individual digital equipment provision for each student via their urgent Digital 4 All campaign.
All WINNING members will be contacted directly by CGSPA and receive their prize money by their choice of either a payment to their bank account or via a cheque sent by post.
A list of winners will be published each month via school e-comms and our CGSPA Facebook page. If you do not yet follow CGSPA via Facebook then please take a look – it is a great way to stay in touch with both us and other parents. https://www.facebook.com/ColytonGrammarschoolPA
We hope that the 500 Club will be very popular, but do require a large number of people to take part in order to become profitable, so ask for your support. This is one fundraising plan that can still take place despite the current COVID-19 limitations. As we have been forced to cancel several events this year, we hope that extended families will support the club generously in lieu of the other events that they had planned to attend. Remember, you can purchase more than one subscription!
A copy of the rules of the 500 Club and its monthly draws is available here, along with a downloadable copy of an application form to give to other family and friends who are unable to apply via ParentPay. If you have any queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck to all our fabulous supporters!
