Fabulous 2020 charity raffle prizes offer a welcome boost

AS the year which has brought more stress than we could ever have anticipated draws to a close, RGS school officers have gathered a collection of coveted raffle prizes offering us all the chance of a welcome boost for Christmas, while raising money for charity.

Top prizes include four luxury £285 wellness spa days at Swinton Estate, providing a range of treatments including rejuvenating scrubs and signature massages and facials. Winners will also enjoy the 18-metre, hydrotherapy and outdoor natural pools and alfresco spa, along with a two-course lunch and a top spa brand gift.

As if that isn't enticing enough, other prizes include Core Gym one-month passes, Appleton's Butchers vouchers, Harrogate Candle Company gifts, a Black Sheep Brewery tour and Lime Tree Observatory family tickets - with more fantastic prizes being added every day.

Our catering team have even donated five two-course Christmas dinners-for-two for RGS students and staff.

Tickets are now on sale via ParentPay or at reception, and cost only £1 each. The draw will take place on Monday, December 14 and prizes will be issued that week.

School officers thanked all the amazing local businesses which are supporting our school community during these very difficult times. As well as raising our spirits, the raffle will raise money for the school's chosen charity for this year, The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.

If you would like to donate a raffle prize please contact Mrs Griffiths at griffithse@ripongrammar.com or drop it into reception.

*The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust works with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds aged 13 to 30 to inspire and enable them to succeed in the career of their choice. They also influence others to create a fairer society in which everyone, regardless of their background, can flourish and can access the opportunities in education and careers that they deserve; promoting equality for all.
