  • The Douay Martyrs PTA

    Published 28/09/20

     The Douay Martyrs PTA launched a new lotto system earlier this year and I would like to thank all Parents, Carers & staff that are currently supporting it and the PTA. 

    The new system is far simpler than the old model; please follow the link below to sign up. One ticket costs only £1 a week and we are guaranteed a winner from school weekly, the more who enter the bigger the cash prize. There is also a much larger draw where one lucky person can win £25,000.

    Currently there are 201 live tickets, meaning we have raised £4181 for our school. I would love to see that number rise! 

    It would be great for as many of you to join as possible, remember it is for a good cause, you are supporting our school and students, but also, you may win some cash!‚Äč
