The lucky winners of the 100 Club prize draw of July 2017 are:
1st nr.69 - Norman Ogilvy
2nd nr.30 - Robert Killip
3rd nr.58 - Susan Jones
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.
We had a fun day in lovely weather at Tynwald Fair. Many people visited our stall, to chat, to play games and to buy raffle tickets and clothing. The SFTD hats and beanies were quite popular as was our mega sale of out of date but still 'in good nick' stock.
The stars of the day were Peter and Sarah who did a magnificent job selling raffle tickets and encouraging children with the lucky dip. The raffle for the large teddy raised in excess of £100. Many thanks to Peter and Keith for donating the Teddy and to Adie for dressing it. The lucky winners were Den and Nicky from The Manx Workshop. Paddington Bear given to Peter as a donation was won by Hugh from Ballaugh. This was the prize for the game " where is POM111 ?" devised by Stuart. The boat was found off the North of the Isle of Man.
Thanks also go to Neil and Gill who helped Tony and myself and to everyone who had fun at our stall. Don provided the gazebo which was excellent for shade and an area to sit with a cup of coffee or tea as well as displaying our goods.
Thank you to the Indian gentleman who purchased a red sweatshirt and a hat and wore them around Tynwald field helping to raise our profile.
Can't wait for next year to do it all over again.
