What is the ‘200 Club’ ?
The 200 Club, has been in existence for over 30 years. It was formed initially to help towards the purchase of St. Jude’s Hall (now St Jude’s Theatre), which has been Society HQ for many years. The proceeds now go towards additional expenses incurred in maintaining the premises and is a major part of the Society’s finances.
How it works
The annual membership cost is £20. There are 200 members each allocated 5 sets of numbers consisting of 3 digits. If one of these sets corresponds with the last three digits of the top prize premium bonds drawn each month, the member will be one of the 5 lucky winners, each one winning £20 over eight months of the year.
Every three months there is one winner of £100.
At the Annual Presentation Evening in March prizes of £750 and £500 together with the remaining quarterly prize of £100 are presented.
Who can join
The membership consists not only of WOS members but also relatives and friends. The 200 Club year starts in March. To join or if you know of someone who would like to join please get in touch.
The yearly membership fee can be paid by cash, cheque or preferably by yearly standing order.
The Presentation Evening
This is held annually in early March to present the prizes to the lucky winners and is usually well attended by over 150 Club members who are invited free of charge but are encouraged to bring along their family and friends; entry for them is charged at £8.
