Over $4000 Raised for Local Schools in Board Game Fundraiser
Thank you to everyone in our community who supported our PCSP Adventures fundraiser in support of the three schools servicing our local community: Beachy Cove Elementary, Brookside Intermediate, and Prince of Wales Collegiate. Over $4000 total was raised in this incredibly successful community fundraiser, and it has been split amongst the three schools.
This week, we were delighted to provide a donation of $1360 to each of the schools from all proceeds earned by board game sales and sponsorship pieces. We hope many students at the schools have enjoyed playing their board games at home too! Sales have now closed for the PCSP Adventures board game, but please check back in the future for additional print runs of the game.

PCSP Adventures Board Game Now Available
Town Creates Board Game to Fundraise for Local Schools
Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, NL – An exciting new local board game called “PCSP Adventures” has been created by the Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s as a fundraiser in support of the community’s schools. The board game is designed for players to move through a map which looks like Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, including local sites and attractions, with fun challenges and activities along the way.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, fundraising is a challenge for all schools this year, so the Town created the game to support initiatives for our local students. Games are now available for pre-order, and every dollar raised will be donated to the schools servicing PCSP students: Beachy Cove Elementary, Brookside Intermediate, and Prince of Wales Collegiate. In addition to funds raised from the sale of games, over 20 businesses throughout the town came on board to sponsor game board spaces for the price of $100 each, which raised over $2000 for the schools before the print game sales even began!
To purchase a game, pre-order through eServices. The game is just $5.00 and it includes everything you need to play:
- 1 Game Board
- 1 Die
- 4 Game pieces
- 1 Package of Smarties (as game coins)
Pick up of games will be arranged via staff at the Town Hall towards the end of October. Further details and a preview of the game can be seen by watching our new promo video on Facebook, here: https://pcsp.ca/article/pcsp-adventures-board-game-launch/
