200 Club Newsletter

Welcome to the September 2022 edition of the 200 Club Newsletter. Each month I provide you, the members of the 200 Club, with an update on winners, money raised, and any other relevant news.

Thank you for your continued financial support of the parish.

The only way is up

For the ninth month in a row you have increased our membership, which is utterly extraordinary. We now have  262 entries each month for the club. To achieve this in such uncertain economic times is a magnificent result.

A very warm welcome to all members who have joined recently, and heartfelt thanks to all of you who play every month.

They are the champions

The draw for August took place earlier today for the winners of three £100 prizes.

The lucky winners were James Leahy, Lydia Dolan, and Bridie La Combre. Congratulations to them.

September draw

There will be three £100 prizes in next month's draw which will take place in the first week of October.

All payments to be received on or before the 30th of September please.

I've got a little list

A list of members' contact information that is - and I'd prefer it to be a much longer list. I don't have any contact information for many of you, and for many others the contact information which I do have is out of date. This means that if you win a prize I might not be able to get it to you.

All members are politely reminded to please register their contact details on the parish website here, and to keep them up to date with any changes. It makes my life easier and yours richer. Thank you.

The final countdown

There were 260 paid entries in August. The monthly profit for the parish after prizes was £1,000. The club has generated a total profit of £6,890 for the parish funds so far in 2022. The projected annual profit for 2022 is currently £10,190.

Thank you to all members.

Big (t)Hanks

Thank you all again so very much for the contribution you all make to the parish finances each month. You really are making a huge difference.

On behalf of myself, Canon Stephen and the parish council, please accept our grateful appreciation.

The failing wall

The relaunch of the 200 Club last year following COVID-19 was prompted in large measure by the looming repair bill resulting from imminent repairs to the church grounds walls. The relaunch has been hugely successful in raising funds, but we are still well short of the sums required. Therefore please ask your friends or family if they would also like to contribute to the parish by joining the 200 Club.

By introducing additional prizes, I have removed the previous limit of 200 entries in the monthly draw. They can find full instructions on the parish website here. If you would like to take out any additional entries, just amend your standing order accordingly and then contact me to let me know.

Who's that guy?

Christopher McLaughlin is a Saint Joseph's parishioner, technology guru, beer brewer, low-altitude motor car pilot, bookie for charity, and cultivator of chins. He is also a husband, father and child-herder. He runs the 200 Club, the parish eBulletin and website, and writes this newsletter. He is occasionally accused of comedy. He attends the 10am Mass on Sundays and doesn't mind at all if you come and talk to him about the 200 Club, as it gives him a break from chastising his children.

Contact information

If you have any questions, or require any help concerning the 200 Club please contact me, Chris McLaughlin, by email at or by telephone, text, or WhatsApp on 07957644546. The 200 Club page on the parish website has information on how the club works, and full instructions on how to join.
