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 January 2020 draw were:
1st prize: £111 ~ Lilian Thompson ; 2nd prize: £55.50 ~ Sue Dawson ; 3rd prize: £27.75 ~ Lilian Thompson.
Application forms & information leaflets are available in Wray Post Office and in the Church
There are currently 111 members in the club.
The prize draws usually take place after the Church Service on the 2nd Sunday of each month, unless there is an appropriate function in the month at which to hold the draw.
The Church Services on these Sundays are usually "Morning " Services & invariably commence at 11 am.
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.
