Why not set up a new 50/50 club, an in-house lottery open to all school families, staff and governors. The objective is to give your parents the possibility of winning one of ten monthly cash prizes whilst raising funds for the school at the same time.
Example: Subscription to the 50/50 club is £20 per year per number. There will be 10 draws per academic year, starting in October 2020 and running until July 2021.
If you sell 100 numbers you will generate £2,000. 50% (£1,000) of this is returned in prizes (£100 to the winner of each of the 10 monthly draws) and the other half will go to PTA school projects. With fewer members the prize money will reduce proportionally, likewise with more than 100 members the prize money will increase proportionally. The winning number will be generated using a random number generator app in the school office and the lucky winner announced via Classlist every month.
