Free National Book Tokens for your school


FREE school book tokens with every locker you buy from Link 51.

Coat pegs mean clutter and trip hazards not to mention the fire risks. This is why schools are turning to lockers as a smarter solution.

We have transformed the corridors and cloakrooms of hundreds of primary, infant and junior schools the width and breadth of the UK, adding affordable, smart, colourful storage solutions that remove clutter and trip hazards and also reduce the issue of lost property.

The summer break is an ideal time to fit lockers in your school, allowing your pupils to return in September to clean, smart, clutter free corridors and cloakrooms. This year we are giving away FREE book tokens with every locker purchased before the end of July 2016.
