As we approach the third anniversary of the #FeesMustFall protests that gripped the country, the Student Representative Council (SRC) of St Augustine College are actively working towards making education accessible to those that can’t afford it. They have decided to run a raffle with some awesome prizes up for grabs. SRC president Busani Tshuma said, “Raising money for financially needy students is a very good cause. Higher education is very expensive and we hope the money we raise can go to funding future students of the college.” Cornel Smith, SRC member, believes a raffle was the best method to involve as many students and people as possible. This will maximize the chances of collecting a sizable amount of funds for their goal.
There are three prizes that raffle participants can win. The first prize will be Dis-chem sponsored goody hamper valued at R4000. It includes Bentley and Michael Kors perfumes and Gucci, L.A Girl and Palladio bags. The second prize is Volkano Bazooka Bluetooth speaker valued at R500. Last but not least, the third prize is a R300 Mugg & Bean voucher. Smith explained that each raffle ticket is R50 and the competition will run until 3 October. Raffle tickets can be purchased from St Augustine College (https://goo.gl/maps/7nfh6G3QEpo). Alternatively you can contact either Busani or Cornel and an arrangement can be made.
The college will announce the winners of the raffle in a multi-platform social media live stream.
