Our Village Lottery - 100 Club represents the ongoing fundraising effort to go towards the uplift of the Village Hall. The timing of the start of this is not perhaps the most opportune with the pressures put on by COVID-19 but we decided to go ahead to keep some kind of normality going and we hope you will consider taking part. To date, 5 draws have taken place with the next scheduled for September 2021.
Entries are always open, when you join you will automatically be included from the next draw onwards.
This is your chance to win up to £250 every 3 months in a village prize draw. You may well have heard or seen in the village newsletter of our intention to set up a village lottery – 100 club.
Our plan as a Village Hall Committee, alongside the Parish Council, is to either make substantial improvements to or completely upgrade the hall to enable us to provide a facility to meet modern needs and serve our community for at least a further 50 years. Our current hall was first built in 1926.
To do this we will need considerable funds and the intention is to raise these funds through grants. However, as well as demonstrating we have a structured plan we will have to show we are raising monies ourselves. One way we can do this on a regular basis is to run our own lottery.
We intend to hold a draw four times a year. This started in June 2020 and will the be done every 3 months. The cost will be £13 per quarter, per person (equating to £1 per week), with draws in June, September, December and March. The draw will be open primarily to the residents of the village and friends or family from outside the village who are over the age of 16. You can have multiple participants from each household, indeed you can request multiple entries in the same name.
Provided we can attract 100 entries, we plan to have six prizes, with the first prize of £250 reducing down to £150, £100, £75, £50 and £25. This equates to paying back 50% of the funds received. Until we can get 100 participants the prizes will be reduced so that every draw we will still give in prizes 50% of the money taken in.
To reduce the administration of the scheme we intend to collect the subscriptions by standing order. If you use on-line banking you can set this up yourself using the account details on the attached standing order form. If you do not use on-line banking, simply complete and sign the downloadable form and send this to your bank for processing.
Susan Painter has now taken over the administration of the 100 Club. Whichever way you proceed, simply advise Susan Painter on, firstname.lastname@example.org of your intention to participate and the names of the members of your household who you wish to be included and confirming you have arranged the necessary standing order. Your standing order should be paid before the 1st of the month when the draw will take place. i.e. if you join now your standing order should be paid before 31st August to be entered into the September 2021 draw.
PLEASE CONTACT SUSAN WITH ANY QUERIES. You can join anytime and you will be included in the next draw.
Thank you if you participate and GOOD LUCK.
Hargrave, Village Hall Committee
