Open Meeting Fundraising

All coaches,
Due to constrainsts being imposed by Tilsley Park we are not able to provide either a BBQ or cake stalll (as hoped) in order to raise funds at this year's open. We have therefore decided that we will hold a raffle in order to make a few pounds!
Due to the timeframes invovled in communicating this I am sending this to all coaches and asking you to notify your athletes that we are seeking donations of raffle prizes. (The forum on Wednesday will be too late)!
These can be brought to the track on either Wednesday (ideally) or Saterday if that's easier.
