200 Club Newsletter

Welcome to the August 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.

Your love is lifting me higher than I've ever been lifted before

Unbelievably, we have set a new all-time record for entries and membership, for the eighth month in a row. We now have a total of regular 261 entries for the club. Your continued generosity is awe-inspiring, particularly given the present economic situation.

Welcome to all members who have joined recently, and thank you to all of you who play every month.

Would July to you?

The (belated) draw for July took place earlier today for the winners of three £100 prizes.

The lucky winners were Kamil Olas, John Preston, and Kathleen Doherty. Congratulations to them.

The puns of August

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

All payments to be received on or before the 31st of August please.

I always get my man

I am pleased to report that Nicholas Farrell, one of the winners of the May draw, has been traced, and has finally received his winnings. I didn't have any contact information for Mr Farrell, but luckily he heard that I was looking for him, and got in touch with me directly. Thank you very much to whomever it was that passed the message on.

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 scores on the doors

There were 259 paid entries in July. The monthly profit for the parish after prizes was £995. The club has generated a total profit of £5,890 for the parish funds so far in 2022. The projected annual profit for 2022 is currently £10,165.

Thank you to all members.

Thank you very very very much!

I'm am genuinely astounded by the extraordinary contribution you are all continuing to make to the parish finances, and the sustained growth in the membership of the club, month on month, for almost a year.

Thank you very much indeed on behalf of myself, Canon Stephen and the parish council.

Wall, see?

As you are no doubt sick and tired hearing about, the parish has an a massive expense on the horizon in the shape of the repair/replacement of the boundary wall of the church grounds. Therefore I would like to ask you all to 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 ask him about the 200 Club, as it gives him a break from chastising his children.
