This will be just after Our 50/50 Lottery draw - 7.30pm
One of our members is going to be £1,280 richer after the bonus draw this Friday. And three other members will be sharing the monthly cash prizes of £240. Our 50/50 Lottery winners are guaranteed, and you don’t have to be there to win!
By this Friday we will have had 210 winners sharing £33,800 and our Club has received a similar amount. It’s a ‘win win’ for all of us. The odds are brilliant – better than 175/1 of winning a prize every month. If you have not yet joined but are interested, details are on the bar, or email – email@example.com. (We are sorry that due to a continuing ‘glitch’ ticket holders are not receiving their separate Lottery emails).

Our weekly Bar Draw – This week there is £470 up for grabs!
