What are we fundraising for?
Welcome to Oare C Of E Primary School's raffle page.
We are excited to join The Big PTA Christmas Raffle. After the last 18 months, we are determined to get our fundraising back on track and this is an opportunity to have some fun and raise money for our school.
For every ticket purchased, you will have 12 chances to win up to £5,000!* At the same time, we will raise 50% from every ticket sold supporting our PTA. It's a fantastic way to bring parents, carers, teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with our PTA, and at the same time give something back. We hope to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of our children – we aim to provide extra resources for the children, improve the school environment, as well as run extracurricular activities such as music, art and sport.
Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!

How the raffle works
For £3 you will get one entry into each of the 12 draws. That’s 12 chances to win. More tickets equals more chances to win.
You choose where your money goes. Select your PTA at checkout to make sure the money from your tickets goes straight to your PTA.
Two draws will run daily from 13th December to the 18th December. We'll announce the winning numbers on the site and we’ll also let you know if you win via email.

What prizes can be won?

How will the draws work?

The winning number will be displayed on the website and we will email the winner to let them know.

How do I pay?
Payment is via debit card only. The site is fully secure, PCI DSS compliant and we don’t store any card details.
If my PTA gets 50% of tickets we sell, where does the other 50% go?
As a national charity, Parentkind gives those with a parenting role a voice in education. We invest substantial resources in representing parent views on their child’s learning to local, regional and national governments and agencies. Parentkind is the network of PTA fundraisers in the UK. We bring specialist fundraising support and advice to parent volunteers so that every school can benefit from a successful PTA. Further information can be found on the Parentkind website.
The pie chart below is based on The Big PTA Summer Raffle 2021.
* If we sell more than 50,000 raffle tickets the prize will be £5,000 and cumulatively £60,000 across 12 days. Otherwise the prize will be 40% of total ticket sales for that draw.
