Support Your School is a free fundraising platform designed to help schools raise money to support children’s literacy. The platform is managed by Peters, a leading specialist children’s book supplier to schools and libraries.
Schools register on the platform, set up a campaign and publicise it to their school community and local businesses. The money raised can then be used to purchase books and other literacy resources from Peters.
About Peters Ltd: Peters Ltd is a family-run business that was first established in 1935. It supplies children’s books and library furniture to schools, academies and libraries.
