New School Lottery is launched

Our new School Lottery launched on the 27th of January, with a weekly chance to win.

Written by Rebecca Roberts

As part of our ongoing fundraising effort, we have launched a new weekly lottery using the "Your School Lottery" platform. This lottery replaces the 100 Club which unfortunately had to close recently. The 100 Club was set up by the PTA more than ten years ago and raised a huge amount of money for the school to buy valuable resources such as science equipment, calculators, sports kits and Taiko drums. The PTA also used the funds raised to donate to the campaigns for the Sixth form centre, Hamilton Hall music centre and the Lynn James Sports Pavilion.

The PTA and the school are both extremely grateful for the money paid in over that time by people who took part in the 100 Club. Its forced closure came at a bad time, when schools' budgets are more stretched than ever. My School Lottery provides a service which enables supporters of Haberdashers' Adams to purchase tickets in a prize draw. It is completely administered by them and you can set yourself up on their website and be entered immediately into the weekly draw. There are two prizes available each week - a local draw which is 30% of all the contributions to Adams' lottery, and a larger nationwide jackpot draw of £25,000. You can find out more information about how it works here.

The more people who sign up then the bigger the school prize gets and the more funds are raised for the school so please consider playing - perhaps you could even be the jackpot winner!
