Helston Railway’s 200 Club Lottery
Membership of the 200 club is open to anyone who is a fully paid up supporter of the Helston Railway Preservation Society. It’s aim is to raise funds for various railway projects and to give members a chance to win cash prizes on a monthly basis.
Members pay £36 in advance and there is no limit to the number of entries a member may have, (Presently running June to May).
50% of all money collected is paid in prize money. Each member is allocated a draw number, which is entered into a monthly draw. The number and size of prizes depends on the number of members each year, i.e. the more members (up to 200) the more and bigger the prizes. At the end of last year the prizes rose to six consisting £50, £30, £20, £10, £10 and £10. At the beginning of every year the prize fund starts small but has always grown significantly by half way through the year.
There are currently plenty of spaces for more members to join and Marion is taking applications for this coming year. The more members we have the larger the prizes and more funds are available to develop the railway.
