Lucky Lottery Balls is a monthly draw which pays out cash prizes each month! For the sum of £23 per year, you will be allocated a number which will be entered into the draw. As the number of players increase, so the prize fund will increase (see below). The next round of Lucky Lottery Balls will start on 1 September, 2021 and the first draw will take place once at least 75 numbers have been sold.
Any supporter of our school can play (provided you are over 18).
