 New stretch target

The more money we raise, the more IT equipment can be purchased for the school.

Who are we?

Friends of Mowden School PTA is an active committee who continually strive to learn from and improve our fundraising activities. In 2020 many of our established events have not been viable so we have been looking at ways to adapt them to a virtual format or find new opportunities to raise money. In the past we have raised money towards musical equipment and playground resources but the past two years has seen us agreeing to fundraise to replace old IT equipment and buy more for the children in school.

There are 21 classes of approximately 30 children each from ages 4 - 11 and there is an adjoining pre-school. 

About the draw

Each year group usually produces a Christmas show and we raffle hampers at the performances with items kindly donated by parents. This year, the shows are all virtual and we have decided to bring our prize draw virtual as well!

The PTA have purchased a series of vouchers for the prize draw:

  • £70 Marks and Spencer’s e-gift voucher
  • £50 Sainsbury’s e-gift voucher
  • £20 Just-Eat e-gift vouchers x 4
  • £20 Morrison’s voucher (kindly donated by Morrison’s)

Prizes will be distributed by e mail after the draw.

Where is the money going?

All money raised from the Prize Draw will go to fund IPads and other IT equipment identified by the school.

How will the draw be run?

The closing date for the draw is Thursday 17th December at 8pm.

For each pledge of £1 you will receive one entry into the prize draw. You can buy multiple £1 entries or pledge £5, £10 or £20. The more you pledge the more entries you will have in the draw and a greater chance to win!
Please remember to select a Reward if you wish to enter the prize draw, rather than just giving a donation. It is essential that when you pledge money for prize draw entries you supply and agree to share your e mail address (make sure it is correct) so that we can send any prizes as soon as possible after the draw.

You can get a free entry into the prize draw if you e mail [email protected]

When will the draw take place?

The prize draw will take place on Friday 18th December. The winning tickets will be selected at random by Mowden head teacher, Mr King. The PTA will notify winners and send out prizes by e mail or post as soon as possible after the draw takes place.

Share, Share, Share!
Please do share and encourage friends, family and neighbours to support us!

Any money pledged after 17th December 8pm will be taken as a donation and will not qualify for prize draw entries.
