200 Club

An Invitation to join...


The Parish Church of Holy Trinity in Prestwood provides a spiritual and social focus for the villages of Prestwood and Great Kingshill and is doing its best to widen the scope and appeal of its activities. Currently, including our contributions to the Diocese of Oxford, it costs around £130,000 p.a. to provide the services and activities in the Church, and the Hall and Cottage.

We would now like to start building up our funds – firstly, so that our incomings and outgoings are not so closely matched, and secondly, to look to the future of Holy Trinity and what it could provide to the community in the future.

With those aims in mind we are now launching a 200 Club which will not only give us a much needed income but also give you the chance to win prizes too!

On the first Sunday of each month a draw will take place when 40% of the fund will be distributed as prizes:-

One prize of 10% of the fund to a maximum of £100

Two prizes of 5% of the fund to a maximum of £50 each

AND as many £25 prizes to bring the prize fund up to the 40%

You may buy as many shares in the fund as you wish – though it is called a 200 Club we will not be stopping at 200 shares if the demand is higher – in fact, the more the merrier – more prizes, more funds for the Church!

If you would like to take part, please read the Rules on the next page and fill out the Application Form and post it to the Church Office and send your completed Standing Order Form (printed with the application form) to your bank.
