The Parish Draw Club has been running since 1990 and is a useful way to help raise funds for the parish. On average, the draw club raises £500 each year towards parish funds. Membership is normally taken out for twelve months, at a cost of £1 per month for each number purchased; members may purchase as many numbers as they wish. The draw takes place on the last Sunday of each month, normally after mass – the prizes are as follows: For eleven months of the year there are two prizes: one of £20 and one of £10 In November, the draw is for four prizes: £100, £60, £40 and £30. This makes 26 prizes for the year. These figures are based on the 1994 membership. To comply with current legislation, we must pay out 50% of all monies collected. If membership increases, additional money collected throughout the year will normally be added to November’s prize money and the amounts adjusted accordingly. Names of prize winners appear in the parish newsletter. New members are always welcome. Anyone interested should contact Noreen Alcock on 01206 824216.
