Christmas Raffle

The PTA Christmas raffle tickets will be on sale from next week.  This year we are looking for your support to help sell tickets so we can raise as much as we can to help fund future trips, outings and activities that benefit the children.

We will be sending home leaflets in school bags and ask that everyone tries to sell as many tickets as they can.  Prizes for most tickets sold!  There will be a prize for KS1 and KS2 for the children that sell the most tickets.  Money collected can either be transferred directly into the PTA bank account (Reference RAF followed by child’s surname plus the number of tickets (e.g. RAFSMITH3) or cash sent back to school in an envelope with your completed forms.  Thank you and good luck!
