QE Family 50/50 Club

What is the 50/50 Club?

50/50 Club

It’s a fundraising club for parents and staff. But you don’t just pay in – it pays out cash prizes too!

How does it work?

Everyone in the club pays £8 three times a year. Cash prizes are paid each term to our lucky winners. Half the money raised is paid as prizes, and the other half goes to QE Family PTA funds. That’s why it’s called the 50/50 Club.

Where does the money go?

The money that is not paid in cash prizes goes towards extra facilities and amenities for students at QE.

How much does it cost?

Membership costs £8 per term (£24 per year), paid by Standing Order from your bank account.

Who decides who wins?

When you join the 50/50 Club, you are allocated a number. Every month, three numbers are drawn at random, so three members win cash prizes. The prize money is paid directly into the winners’ bank accounts.

How to join

Simply contact Mark Willis (mwillis@qe.dorset.sch.uk) and we will send you an application form. The more members there are, the bigger the cash prizes!
