Since our last lottery update for the end of September, the Lottery has continued to fund projects for the benefit of the football club, the latest being a donation of £2465.00 for a mower which will help to make life a little easier for our excellent volunteers who work extremely hard in keeping the pitch in good condition despite inclement weather.
At the moment the Lottery membership has stalled at 263 current active mandates and it is important that membership continues to grow to enable the lottery to provide vital funding for a number of projects which will ensure that the club continues to develop its infrastructure.
With this in mind, the Lottery Committee have recently introduced, in addition to the individual agent scheme which offers 30% commission, the opportunity to other sports clubs, school and community organisation, they will receive a very generous commission of 50% of all money raised by recruiting new lottery members. The more members a partner organisation recruits, the more money it raises for its causes. By way of an illustration, if an organisation recruits 25 people each paying £5.00 per month who remain members of the lottery for 12 months, the organisation will receive commission of £750.00
Anyone interested in joining the Lottery, becoming an individual agent or a partner organisation, please contact the club on 01785 602430 or speak to any members of the Lottery Committee, namely David Montgomery, John Mcmillan, Paul Griffiths or Eric Robins.
We wish to thank all existing members for their continued support throughout 2017 and wish everyone a very happy and hopefully prosperous new year and look forward to your continued support.
As the saying goes…”you have to be in it to win it!”
