1. Hello, I’m in Year 11 at a state school in the U.K. Every year we have one week called R.A.G week in which we raise money for two charities.
This year, all year 11s are in group of 4-5 team mates and have to come up with a stall to raise money.
I have chosen to run a lucky envolpes game in which there are 25 envolpes which all contain sweets, chocolate coins and a small pack of coloured pencils typically. We are using a pot to put the folded up numbers that will be picked at random out of the pot by the pupil. The cost of this is 50p.
However there are 570 students attending the charity fair ranging from the age of eleven to thirteen.
My parents have brought a large pot of around 150 lollipops to sell along side to the game as it’s likely to sell out quickly.
My question is how much would you pay for a standard lollipop?
I was thinking 10p a lollipop or 3 for 20p.

Hi, that game you came up with sounds really good and original
I think 10p each is a very fair price, and it would be a good price to test the waters at (if they are selling VERY quickly you might want to consider raising the price- this is from my experience of running school charity events).

Good luck and have fun
