Charity raffle for disadvantaged children to go on holiday

I am a primary school teacher and every year we organise a residential trip to take 60 of the children to an activity centre for 4 nights. The school that I work in serves a deprived area and for most of the children this 4 night trip is the only holiday that they have ever been on.

As a school, we believe that a brilliant residential should be seen as a fundamental part of a well-rounded education. We know that its support in helping schools create life changing experiences that have a measurable impact back in school influences the futures of these young people every year.

We are absolutely committed to helping you get the most out of the learning outside the classroom experience.

We know that successful outdoor residential experiences provide challenge, build confidence, promote independence, forge life-long friendships and also increase student engagement and attainment back at school. It also provides an opportunity for these children to get out of the city, see that there is more to the world than the estate where they all live. (I'm always shocked how surprised they are to see what the countryside looks like!)

Due to the high level of deprivation that these families face, we fund as much of the trip as possible. In previous years, school budgets have allowed for us to subsidise places and we have also had access to a number of grants to further reduce the costs. However, funding cuts are making this more and more difficult. It is looking like trips like this will be less and less viable as the school budget becomes more stretched and fewer other avenues exist for us to approach for funding. 

I am aiming to raise £500 to cover the transport costs for this trip.

So, the raffle:

In a similar fashion to a charity raffle that has been organised on Brickiest before, I am offering a prize of #9468 Vampyre Castle. If anyone would like to offer any additional prizes please let me know.

Tickets can be purchased through this Just Giving page. 

Tickets are priced at £1 each and will be available from now until midnight BST on Friday 14th July 2017.

How it will work:-

Ticket numbers will be allocated and pm'd to all who pledge money to the page.  It would really help if people send me a PM when they have made a pledge so that I can keep track of the order of number allocations.

If you have any questions relating to this raffle, get in touch and I will happily answer them.

Thanks to everyone for any support that you can give.
