We are now entering a very exciting phase of Lymm Rugby Club’s development. The new clubhouse project has got the green light from Warrington Borough Council and we are in the final stages of negotiations with the RFU over the installation of a new Artificial Grass Pitch at Crouchley Lane.

The 500 Club is one of Lymm Rugby Club’s ongoing fundraising initiatives, to raise funds towards the building of the new clubhouse and related facilities.

This is a quarterly draw with half the money raised being distributed as cash prize money, with the remaining 50% going towards the Lymm Grass Roots Clubhouse Appeal.

Clearly, the more of our members who become involved in supporting this, the bigger the Prize Pot!!  The ticket price is, effectively, £5 per month – paid in 4 quarterly Standing Order instalments of £15. The quarterly draws will be held in early December, March, June and September.

For each draw the prize money allocation will be as follows:

Two 1st Prizes, each winning 13.33% of the Prize Pot;

Five 2nd Prizes, each winning 5.33% of the Prize Pot;

Ten 3rd Prizes, each winning 2.67% of the Prize Pot; and

Fifteen 4th Prizes, each winning 1.33% of the Prize Pot.

So, if we are successful in achieving our target membership of 500, each Quarterly Prize Pot will be £3,750 and the individual prizes 2x £500; 5x £200; 10x £100; and 15x £50.  Clearly, if we have less than 500 members then the individual prizes will reduce proportionately.  As you will note, the proposed Prize structure means that for each draw there will be 32 winners, and in each year 128 winners – so more than 25% of the participating entries will win a prize each year. Better odds than the National Lottery.

As of mid-July 2018, we are around 300 short of our 500 target. We have a collective responsibility to secure the future of our great club, as we approach our 60th anniversary in 2020. So, please get involved, help us reach our fundraising targets and maybe you’ll win a big lump of cash in the process!!
