The lucky winners of the 100 Club prize draw of January 2018 are:
First prize - Rod Forshaw
Second prize - Linda Moore
Third prize - Betty Cooke
The 100 Club is a prize draw that helps to raise funds for your charity. We need more members joining the 100 Club so more funds will be raised. The more members we have the bigger the prizes, so please consider joining.
The cost is only £2 per month, that is £24 usually paid annually. Members stand a very good chance of winning and recuperating their subscription. Application forms can be downloaded from this website.
The Douglas Club of the worldwide organisation Soroptimist International GBI has been working since 1952 to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities and throughout the world. They are part of a global organisation with 109,403 members in 28 countries!
Together they are all committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential, realise their aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong and peaceful communities worldwide. The Douglas club fundraises for projects globaly but they also have a focus on our Island community and Manx charities, which resulted recently in their support of Sailing for the Disabled with the fantastic amount of £2000.
We can't thank them enough for this generous donation.
With a new year ahead we are aiming to get more people out on the boat. To make this possible we need our crew to be confident and up to date. For an update on training, please check the Training section on this website.
WISHING YOU ALL SMOOTH WEATHER AND MANY HAPPY SAILING DAYS !
