So what is FAW Club? Well it’s basically a 100 Club but we wanted to start giving out prizes as soon as we reached 50 members so we decided to call it FAW Club instead. For the sum of £25 per year, you will be allocated a number which will be entered into a monthly draw to win a cash prize. As our numbers increase, so the prize fund will increase (see below).
Any supporter of our school can play (provided you are over 18).
FAW Club Rules established January 2019
The FAW Club is a private society lottery which sells tickets / numbers to the Members of the Friends of Five Acre Wood School (FoFAWS). Under the FoFAWS Constitution, Members are defined as the “parents, guardians or carers of any pupil currently attending school, teaching and non-teaching staff employed by the school and any person over the age of 18 who wishes to offer appropriate support or help to the school”.
The FoFAWS will use the profits from the tickets to support two campaigns in 2020:-
If, during the period of the lottery, funds are no longer needed for these campaigns, the profits may be used for any other school project being fundraised for by the FoFAWS under the Objects of the Association.
- There must be a minimum of 50 fully paid up participants / numbers before the first draw can take place
