Why should I join the 200 Club?

It is a great way to raise funds for the benefit of Michael House School. In particular:

  • for sustainable restoration of the school buildings
  • to assist supported places
  • to support children who may otherwise be prevented from participating in school activities.

It pays out cash prizes via monthly prize draws. Approximately 50% of all monies collected go into the prize fund. Prizes will be draw 12 times a year. Two of these draws (June and December) will be super draws.

What are the prizes?

The prizes are worked out as a percentage of income. The monthly standard draws will be made up to 30% of that month’s income with 20% of the income being carried forward to the super draws.

  • 1st prize will take 15%
  • 2nd prize will take 10%
  • 3rd prize will take 5%

The super draw prize fund will be made up of 50% of that month’s income plus up to five month’s carried forward prize money as follows:

  • 1st prize will take 50%
  • 2nd prize will take 10%
  • 3rd prize will take 5%

Remember … the greater the number of participants the bigger the prizes!
