Life is full of surprises, and being guardians of an old building presents its own challenges. There was a time when we were able to run the Club solely on the subscription revenue but that is no longer possible. Gone are the days when the profit on the Bar and Catering funded maintenance and repairs.
When our lease came up for renewal there was a long list of costly issues that needed to be addressed. Fortunately, we had a small group of dedicated members who volunteered to help with many of these projects thus saving the Club large sums of money. Your Committee therefore decided to seek ways of avoiding such difficulties in the future by tackling such work on an on-going basis. We therefore launched the NLRC 100 Club.
You could be a major help by being part of this way of raising funds for the Club.
This monthly lottery raises funds in support of our joint enjoyment of the NLRC and pays out 50% of funds raised in prizes. The money raised is spent on specific projects that participants of the lottery help identify and prioritise.
Rules and Arrangements (February 2021)
Participants pay £10 per month by Standing Order to be entered into the monthly draw. Fifty percent of your donation goes towards the prize fund and 50% to support Club projects. The draw is open to members of the NLRC, as well as friends and family.
For 2021, the 100 Club runs initially for 10 months from March to December 2021. The draw is on the 5 th of each of these months. Participation gives you membership of the NLRC 100 Club and a vote in the projects to benefit from the funds raised.
The prize fund goes to a single winner each month.
Winners are contacted individually, and results are posted on the Club’s website and social media*.
Club arrangements and rules are determined and may be varied by the NLRC Committee and are posted on the NLRC website.
To join the 100 Club, NLRC members and friends can join by paying £10 a month which must be via Standing Order. To be eligible for the monthly draw, the payment to the 100 Club funds needs to reach the NLRC 100 Club account by the 1 st of each month of participation starting on 1 st March 2021 and ending for 2021 on 1 st December.
Contact the Treasurer on firstname.lastname@example.org and he will issue you your 100 Club Membership Number. Please also give him your bank details for payment of any winnings (or payment can be made to your NLRC tab account if you prefer).
