School’s Christmas fundraiser raffles single bottle of Prime to collect money for classes amid energy drink craze | The Sun

A SAVVY school raffled off a bottle of Prime to raise money for classes as the energy drink craze continues.

Ponthir Church in Wales Primary School cashed in on the mayhem by advertising a single bottle of the sought-after drink.

Prime, which retails for £1.99, has sent shoppers crazy with some bottles being sold for thousands of pounds on eBay.

The Friends of Ponthir Facebook group advertised the blue raspberry concoction as part of its Christmas raffle.

Sharing a picture of the drink, it said: "Have you seen the fuss this drink is creating in supermarkets at the moment? If not, see the link below…

"But we have one in our raffle!

"We’ll be at the school gates selling raffle tickets on most days, so please do bring cash along and buy some for families and friends too."

One lucky raffle-goer managed to snap up the drink as part of the school's charity event.

It is not clear how many raffle tickets they bought but the slips were being sold for £1 each.

The event itself helped raise £257 for the group, which raises money for the primary school and community.

Other prizes on offer included bottles of alcohol, a photography class and a pack of razors.

Prime was created and popularised by YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul and has seen demand skyrocket in recent weeks.

Its popularity grew after the pair promoted it heavily around high-profile celebrity boxing matches in the UK.

It was originally only sold in Asda, but Aldi recently landed an exclusive deal to stock it for a limited time.

This led to carnage in stores as children as young as seven were shoved out of the way so shoppers could get their hands on the drink.

The Sun Online has contacted the school for comment.
