WEYBRIDGE VANDALS RUGBY FOOTBALL, CRICKET and NETBALL CLUBS
JOIN THE VANDALS 500 CLUB
THEVANDALS 500 CLUB has been the cornerstone of the club’s major project fund raising for over 50 years. It was originally set up in 1965 to help raise the money to construct the then “new” changing rooms! It works very simply with members contributing £5 per month via a standing order and of the monies raised a total of 33% is paid out in monthly prizes usually drawn at pre-match lunches or other special occasions. The balance of 67% is paid into the Development Fund.
Over the years, funds raised through the 500 Club and other sources including a legacy of £40,000 from the late Harry Porthouse, donations from members and other fund-raising activities have been “ring fenced” in a Development Fund available to be spent only on major projects. In the last 15 years just over £300,000 has been spent as follows;
There are currently just over 250 members of the 500 club, some of whom have multiple “stakes” and altogether there are just under 340 numbers “in play” generating proceeds each year of over £20,000 of which £6,000 is drawn as “prizes” of £500 every month and the balance is paid into the Club’s Development Fund to be spent in accordance with the objectives detailed in this Application Form.
If you are not already a member of the 500 Club could you please help the Club’s fund-raising efforts by completing the attached application form and returning it to me at the address indicated on the form. You can buy as many numbers as you wish at the rate of £5 per number per month.
