Dear Parents,

St.Bridgets PTA would like to ask for your help with raffle prize donations for our upcoming christmas raffle.

Therefore, we would like to ask if there are any parents who would be happy to donate or ask their employers for a raffle donation please.

This could range from a raffle gift, gift voucher, cash donation and can vary from free haircuts and beauty treatments, to event tickets and attractions, electronic gadgets, hampers, confectionery etc.

Any donations would be gratefully received to help with raising vital funds for our school and the raffle is always well supported and raises lots of money.

Many thanks for your continuing support
