We are delighted to announce the accumulated total raised for the club through the half-time 50/50 Draw at St James Park during the 2012/13 season stands at a whopping £14,504.43. The same amount was given away to our draw winners in prize money.
Our team of sellers tour the stadium before the games kick off, selling draw tickets to supporters for 50p each. And at half-time, the draw takes place on the pitch with one lucky ticket-holder claiming the jackpot of half the winnings, with the other half being donated to the club.
A number of our winners this season have shown exceptional levels of generosity too, by donating a portion of their takings to the club by giving to the youth academy or other causes.
Huge thanks go to our sellers for their hard work in raising funds for the club and for helping to create a bumper jackpot for one winner at every match. And thanks to all that take part in the 50/50 Draw – let’s try to beat £14,504.43 in 2013/14!
