As you are all aware we are not a money club and we rely heavily on our sponsors, the money we get from them helps the club out in a lot of ways but this can only be stretched so far. I have come up with a solution to this in which you as players, supporters, parents, friends and volunteers can help the club.
It is called the 250 club. This will be like a monthly lottery in which 1st prize wins £250, 2nd £100 and 3rd £50. With 4 of the draws (on VP’s Day’s) 1st prize being £500.
Sounds good so far? In order to have a chance to win these wonderful cash prizes you will have to purchase a monthly ticket for £5, or a 1 off cost for the year of £60. There will be 12 draws a year so even on off season you are in a chance of winning!
So how does it work you say? In order for this to be cost effective and raise funds to the club we need a minimum of 250 tickets sold, you can buy as many tickets you want, but you will have to continue to buy that amount of tickets for the rest of the year as you will be assigned to a certain number (s). In effect each ticket will cost you £60 a year, either paid up in full when it starts or £5 a month via direct debit.
So I am now asking you all if you would be interested in signing up for this. I am looking to start this monthly lottery in the new season, so it gives you plenty of time to ask all friends and family too get involved. To begin with there will only be 250 tickets available and this will be done on a 1st come 1st serve basis, but if of course we get more people interested we can make the amount of tickets available more, which means the prize money will go up!
So if you are interested please get in touch with myself and I can add you to the list!
If you have any questions please ask.
