Kirton Church Fund

The September draw takes place on Sunday 22nd with the winning numbers printed in the November magazine.

The October draw takes place on Sunday 27th with winning numbers printed in the December magazine.

Well done to the winners, especially our first prize winner who is a first time winner.

This month I’ve been looking back to August in past years and every year since we started in 2012 we have lost a member in August! The good news is that this year we have bucked the trend and still had all the players for the August draw. However next month will see the fund loose two numbers. I have so far managed to recruit a new member, welcome aboard and good luck to them. Sadly though it does leave us one number short so the prize fund for September will drop. How about joining us so that we can get the prize fund back up? You could be lucky and win. There is plenty of room for more members and there is a very good chance of winning in the Kirton Church Fund monthly draw.

Come on and join us, anyone over 18 may take part. The prize fund each month is 1/4 of the money taken each month. The rest of the money goes to the Kirton Church Fund. The more people that join the higher the prize fund and the more money we raise for the church.

You can join at any time during the year and you can do it monthly if you wish at only £5 per month. (£50 if joining for the whole year and £28 for 6 months.

Registration forms are available from the back of church,from Paula’s Gifts on Station Road, from Kirton Library or from Fay, please ring 01205 723529, or for more information about Kirton Church Fund please give Fay a ring.
