Welcome to the Village Hall’s 200 Club, a local lottery which will deliver a monthly prize while also raising money for the Hall.
How does it work? There will be 12 monthly draws starting with April 2018. One number from those chosen by participants will be drawn out at the following month’s Community Café. The winner will receive a cheque equivalent to half of the numbers sold for that particular month. So if 40 numbers had been sold, this would give very good odds of 40:1 and mean a winner’s cheque for £20. If 60 numbers had been sold the prize would be £30, up to a maximum of £50.
The lottery is open to anyone, whether they live in Claxton or Carleton St Peter or not. There is no limit to the number of tickets which can be bought, but we ask that each ticket is bought for the year (or what remains of it). £12 will get you a number for the whole of 2018-19 and you are free to chose any of the unallocated numbers between 1 and 200.
Numbers are now on sale through Mike Balmer, and he will be at the Community Café on 13 February to answer any questions and sell numbers. The draw for April will be on Tuesday 8 May.
