200 Club

Welcome to Brecon Cathedral’s 200 CLUB – a great way for you to support the work of the Cathedral whilst having a bit of a flutter! Here’s how it works…

You complete and sign the attached membership form and pay the fee either by cash, cheque, or by filling in the Standing Order form below.

This buys you one membership number (we will allocate), which enters you into the twice yearly draw. All participants must be over 16.

The draw will take place on the first Sunday in June and the first Sunday in December before or after the 11:00am Service. Think of the prize as holiday money or money for Christmas!

If you win, and you are here on the day, a cheque will be given to you. If you cannot make it to the service, we will post it to your home address.

Each number costs £48.00 a year. Payment of £48.00 can be made by cheque or cash, or you can spread payment over two instalments of £24.00 a year by Standing Order. For that, you get entered into two draws. Assuming 200 people join, the first prize in each draw will be £1,000, the second prize in each draw will be £500, and the third prize each draw will be £200. That’s a 1 in a 100 chance of winning £1,000 during the year. If we have below 200 members, we will still have a draw but the prizes will be proportional to the members we have and therefore lower. But the odds of winning will be greater.

The prize money will be 36% of the membership fee taken. The remaining 64% goes to the Cathedral.

Mike Williams will administer the scheme on behalf of the Dean and Chapter of Brecon Cathedral and any queries should be directed to him.
