Some of our testimonials
Don't just take out word for it! The schools and PTAs we work with have given us great feedback about their experiences of working with Your School Lottery. Check out some of their comments below.
Robin Hood Primary School
From the very first contact, I was impressed with the efficiency and level of support that was freely given – including the phone calls that we had when deciding if it was feasible for us to launch in four weeks before the end of our term.
The emailed instructions are easy to read, understand and follow and the whole signing up process took no more than five minutes – including reading the email!! Following on from this, the process of signing up on a personal level is fabulous – two minutes maximum!

It's been really simple with all of our tailored leaflets and posters being created for us which we've been emailing out to as many people as possible; The digital leaflets have made it easy for our supporters to sign up on our Facebook page with the click of a few buttons! We are delighted to hear that we're already above the 100% calculated participation level. One of the best ideas we've had was to post the leaflets through the letter boxes of local residents and put posters up in our community, as a result, we're now seeing our campaign extending well beyond our school gates into the wider community.

We're a small school, just 300 pupils, and wanted to raise money without the same handful of PTA committee members having to constantly organise events,school lottery has encouraged lots of different people to contribute, and we're on target to raise £1500 this year!
