Parkway's Big Christmas Draw

We need your help!

By Keira Bassett, October 23

Christmas is fast approaching (sorry, we said it!), and with it comes the much-anticipated Parkway Big Christmas Draw. As such, we are seeking support and contributions to help raise funds for our club. The steadfast support we receive from our sponsors, club associates, dedicated fans, and local businesses is indispensable for the efficient functioning of our club.

Parkway makes a positive impact on our community and we take pride in the opportunities our club provides, not only for the youth of today but also for individuals from diverse backgrounds. We believe our club plays a crucial role in providing opportunities, fostering a sense of belonging, and instilling valuable life skills and values. Here are some key points that highlight the significance of your support for our club:

Youth Development:

Parkway is contributing to the development of young individuals by offering them a constructive and healthy outlet. Through sports, young people can learn teamwork, discipline, and the importance of perseverance, which are skills that can benefit them throughout their lives.

Community Engagement:

By providing support and opportunities for individuals from diverse backgrounds, we promote inclusivity and community engagement. This helps build strong, cohesive communities where people from all walks of life can come together and share common interests.

Preventing Vandalism:

Engaging youth in positive activities like sports can help deter acts of vandalism and other delinquent behavior. By offering an alternative to destructive activities, we are contributing to the overall safety and well-being of the community.

Values and Skills:

Sports are an excellent way to teach important values such as sportsmanship, fair play, and respect for others. These values, along with the skills learned through sports, can be applied in various aspects of life, including education and career.

Community Building:

We are an essential part of the community fabric, bringing people together and creating a sense of belonging. This can help strengthen social bonds and reduce isolation, particularly for those who might feel marginalised or disconnected.

Positive Role Models:

Coaches and mentors within our club serve as positive role models for the youth, demonstrating the importance of hard work, dedication, and a commitment to personal growth.

Your support is not just an investment in sports; it’s an investment in the betterment of your community, its youth, and its future. By supporting your club, individuals and organisations can be part of this positive change and help shape a brighter future for everyone involved.

We are currently in search of prizes to offer in our Big Christmas Draw, as well as a sponsor for the draw itself.

The sponsor’s logo and contact information will be prominently displayed on the back of the 5,000 tickets that we print. Additionally, we are on the lookout for individuals willing to get involved and assist in selling these tickets once they are ready so if you have a penchant for engaging with people and are willing to take on a batch of tickets for sale, please don’t hesitate to reach out, and we will make the necessary arrangements.

In previous years, the types of prizes we’ve provided include, among other things, the following:

  • Bottles of wine
  • Cakes
  • Fruit baskets
  • Beers
  • Vouchers
  • TV’s
  • Various gadgets
  • Cash

Donations can be conveniently made in several ways:

  1. During Match Days: You can drop off your contributions directly at the club on match days before opening times (12pm on a weekend and 5pm on a weekday), making it a seamless process.
  1. Friday Afternoons, Friday Club: Alternatively, we are also available to receive donations on Friday afternoons during our Friday Club gatherings, creating a designated time for supporters to contribute.
  1. Personal Collection: If neither of these options suit, we can make alternative arrangements at a time that is convenient.

Your generosity and willingness to contribute to our football club are commendable, and we are truly grateful for your support. In return, we are committed to acknowledging your support across our social media platforms, helping you showcase your business’s personality and generosity.
