Carly Evans - The Bryn Deri Primary School PTA
We love using TheGivingMachine. It is a simple way to raise donations for Bryn Deri Primary School PTA and it doesn’t cost us a penny!

“This year we have been raising money to enhance our outdoor learning environment and have put the money raised through TheGivingMachine towards repainting the lines in our playgrounds.

“We particularly like the Promotional Materials section of the website – we use them on Facebook and Twitter, printed out as posters to use at events, and e-mail templates to existing givers and to encourage new givers to sign up.

“The team at TheGivingMachine offer superb support if you have any queries.
