Our Story and Company History

Home / Our History

Our story begins in 2013, on a mission to help good causes connect with their communities and raise money ethically, using a fun and engaging platform.
Our first product, Your School Lottery, is launched with the aim of helping schools across the UK deal with increasing austerity pressures.
In 2015 we became the first online lottery provider for local authorities, launching the Vale Lottery in partnership with Aylesbury Vale District Council.
2018 saw us hit an amazing milestone of £3 million raised annually for good causes across the UK. We celebrated by having some well-deserved cake.
In 2019, we were awarded the 'Lottery Operator of the Year' award by The Lotteries Council which we still hold. Also in 2019 Gatherwell is acquired by Jumbo Interactive Ltd. Jumbo is the leading digital retailer of Australia’s best-loved charity lotteries and Australian state lotteries.
Gatherwell hits yet another amazing milestone. We're now donating over £5million a year to UK good causes. We're celebrating with even more cake!
