The Friends of St James the Less Church, Lower Tatham, have launched a "100 Club" in order to raise funds for the development and maintenance of the Church building.

For those who are not familiar with a "100 Club" the idea is that people give a monthly amount to the Club. At present this amount is set at a minimum of only £5 per month.

Depending on the amount you give, you will be allocated one or more entries into a prize draw each month. 35% of the total raised is returned in prizes to lucky winners chosen at random.

Since the 100 Club has been formed, it has raised  £29,254.50, paid out £10,151.75 in prizes, with a residue of £19,102.75 which has been made available to improve the facilities of the Church.

The winners of the May 2020 draw were:

1st prize: £114 ~ Richard Sanderson ; 2nd prize: £57 ~ Margaret Whatmough ; 3rd prize: £28.50  ~ Rachel Hale (nee Berry).

For application forms & further information,

please contact Sue Wood - email: or telephone: 07703 848430 or 015242 21170.

There are currently 114 members in the club.

During the current situation, the prize draws will take place at the home of Sue Wood and will be video linked to the Friends Treasurer, Paul Whatmough.

Good luck with the draw which not only provides the chance of winning cash prizes but also gives the added satisfaction of knowing you are supporting this beautiful part of our heritage and helping to preserve it for ourselves and future generations.
