4. Enter our monthly raffle ~ join the 100 club
Great Whittington Village Hall runs a monthly raffle to raise funds for the village hall upkeep. It's called the 100 Club because there are 100 numbers for sale.
Would you like to be in with a great chance to win £50 or £20 each month? Of course you would ... and that's where the Village Hall Hundred Club comes in! For an annual investment of just £24, you simply pick a number between 1 and 100. Each month at the coffee morning, we pick out two numbers - the first wins fifty quid, and the second wins £20.
If you haven't got your number yet, click here and see which numbers are still available.
You can buy a number just for £24, valid for one year.
So you have 12 chances of winning any of these prizes over the year with just one number.
If you wish to buy more than one number you can. Obviously, the more numbers you have, the better the chance of winning.
Go on over to the 100 club page and purchase your number now.
We often need volunteers to help with a wide variety of events and activities.
If you are prepared to help in any way, please go to the contact page and send us your details. There are many ways you can help, either on an 'ad-hoc' basis, or with regular events and activities. Whatever you can do will be gratefully appreciated.
