How are Northwest Soroptimists raising funds for the Regional President’s Charity during the Covid-19 Pandemic?

What can we do?

In the current circumstances, charitable fund-raising event opportunities are limited when we can’t meet in person.  Even the old standby of a raffle is difficult when we can’t sell the tickets!

Enter the simple idea of a 100 Club. This is defined as a small society lottery in the Gambling Act 2005 and ours is registered with Lancaster City Council, registration number SL0014.

What does it cost to join

Each number costs £12.00 and is valid for 1 year from 1st January 2021. There is no limit to how many numbers each person/club can buy, but if the total number application exceeds 100-multiple number requests will be limited. It will be possible to join mid-year with the cost per number being adjusted pro-rota (£1 per month).

What are the prizes?

The monthly prizes are £15, £10 and £5.

How do I join?

Please complete the application form and send either by post with a cheque (or a completed Standing Order form) or by email with confirmation that a bank transfer has been made. Confirmation of the allocation of number(s) will be emailed to applicants.
If the 100 Club is oversubscribed, then a waiting list will be created and when this list reaches 50 a second 100 Club will be created or the existing club amended to be a 200 Club.

Who can join?

Anyone aged 16 or over or numbers may be held in the name of individual clubs.

Where and when will the draws take place?

Where possible at a Soroptimist Event commencing January 2021.

So what are you waiting for – let’s all join in with this easy way to raise some funds for the Regional President’s Charity.
