We are currently looking for members to start a 100 Club to support the Band. If we can get enough subscribers to commit to the idea, we would envisage starting the Club in early 2020 initially for a 12-month period.
There would be 100 numbers available for subscribers to purchase, with a limit of 2 numbers per subscriber. Each number in the draw will cost £1 per month and will be held for 12 months. For each monthly draw, half the takings will go to the holder of the winning number. Therefore, if you hold 1 number it will cost £12 for the year and you will have 12 chances of winning the monthly prize.
As an example, if all numbers were purchased, each month the £100 takings would be split equally, with £50 going to the holder of the winning number and £50 going to band funds.
Although we very much hope this will raise money for the band, we also hope it will be a better investment than normal lottery tickets!
Monies raised through the 100 Club will go towards new uniform, replacement music stands, the purchase of new music scores, instrument maintenance and general band expenditure.
Payment will be possible by cheque, bank transfer or PayPal. Payment will be made for 12 months in advance.
If you are interested in helping start the 100 Club by being one of the initial subscribers, please fill out the contact form below to express your interest. Entry is open to all Band members and supporters. We will get back to everyone who expresses an interest with an update, with the first monthly draw expected to take place on 22nd April 2020 if the scheme goes ahead.
