The start of St Eunan’s College big fundraising drive is now getting very close and tickets are being snapped up.
The well-known Letterkenny secondary school has issued an appeal for funding to continue their close relationship with the Parents’ Association.
The Parents’ Association work with St Eunan’s to promote the Letterkenny school in every way possible which allows them to provide the best possible facilities for their students.
The Silver Circle Draw will see those who buy a ticket receive a chance to win one of 83 prizes.
And with the number of tickets limited to just 500, your chance of winning is almost one in five for those of you who did well in maths at St Eunans!
Every month participants have the chance to win prizes between €50 and €500. In month 12 there are 10 prizes ranging from €100 to €1000.
All profits from the draw will be used for the benefit of our students, present and future.
In the past cash raised from such draws has contributed to the renovation of computer rooms, new furniture and technology in classrooms, restoration of the football pitch and support in the science labs.
The school would like to continue to provide their many extra-curricular activities including all sports, computing, science and maths activities etc.
However, without extra financial support this will prove difficult if not impossible.
The first draw takes place on 14th May and monthly thereafter. If you would like to support the draw your contribution would be very welcome.
Tickets are available from Donegal Stationery Co. in Letterkenny or from any parents association member.
A statement from the college read: “The level of extra-curricular activities and student supports put in place by the College is staggering but also costly.
