New!  The 200 Club invites new members to join for the next 6 monthly draws
St Joseph's 200 Club 2020 is re-opening  from 27th July to 16th August so that new members can join for the remaining six months (August to January) of the current year.  We have a wait-list of members interested in joining and currently have 15 places available for new members.  Please contact us by 16th August 2020 if you would like to join our very successful 200 Club.  There are a maximum 200 memberships available each year.

What is the 200 Club? 
The 200 Club is a membership club where each member buys an entry to each monthly draw.  Membership is open twice a year, in January before the start of the membership year which runs from February to the following January, and again in July for the second six months of the membership year.  There are six remaining draws to be held this year.  Entry costs £10 per month and is payable in advance.

Each member has a chance to win one of four prizes each month - the prize fund is currently a fantastic £910 per month but will increase as membership numbers increase to a maximum prize fund of £1,000 for each monthly prize draw (with maximum 200 members).  Plus there is an additional new "Bonus" prize of £100!  So lots of chances to win in the remaining draws to be held this year!

How does my membership help St Joseph's?
The 200 Club will raise £11,000 this year for the parish based on current membership.  Each new membership will increase the funding raised for the parish to a maximum of £12,000 if we reach 200 members.  The 200 Club pays 50% of the proceeds back to members as prize money each month with the remaining 50% making a valuable contribution to parish funds.  Every membership contributes and your support is much appreciated.
