€500 Cash Draws
Lee Strand hosts a series of €500 Cash 4 Schools draws for schools within our local community every year. This gives schools a great opportunity to win much-needed funds to assist in the development of their school’s sports equipment, library facilities and much more. There is always great excitement when our Lee Strand mascot Mighty Mikey Milk visits the winning school for the €500 presentation. We also bring along milk and goodies for all pupils in the school.
