Aim: To support the Training and Development Fund (T & D Fund) (a Designated Fund within the General Fund).
The fund is to support members of the Winchester and Portsmouth Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers especially to support those members under 25. The object of this fund shall be to provide financial assistance by way of grants to individuals and groups incurring expenditure on: the provision of training, attending courses and events, training materials, payment of tutor expenses, educational assets and any other worthy project to enhance and enable the development of a ringer or group of ringers, or the purchase by the Guild of goods or services to assist in the development of a ringer or group of ringers.
Due to legal requirements, only members of the W+P and its towers can be 200 club members.
How do I become a member?
By payment of the sum of £12 per annum paid by Standing Order, Cheque or BACS transfer, a dedicated number for a 12-month period will be allocated.
There will be 3 Draws per year drawn on or near the March and November Executive meetings and at the Guild AGM.
½ of the monthly income will go to the T & D Fund and the rest will be accumulated as prize money.
Each draw will pay out the total of the accumulated prize fund broken down in 6 prizes:
1 @ 50%, 1 @ 20%, 2 @ 10% and 2@ 5%.
The percentage will remain constant but the actual prize money will vary dependant on the receipts received between draws.
When will the draws take place?
The first draw will take place at the W + P Executive Committee March meeting with the accumulated Prize money to 31st March 2017. The following draws will take place at the AGM, with accumulated Prize money to 30th June 2017, and the November Executive with accumulated Prize money to 30th November 2017. Continuing draws will be made in a similar pattern.
Can I have multiple numbers?
Yes, you can have multiple numbers – but each one will cost you £12!
