Village raise valuable funds every year for the sole purpose of defending
our local villages against unsustainable and badly planned housing
development. Money raised, is used to provide funding to pay for expert
advice and legal representation to defend our villages in the best way
possible to ensure only appropriate and locally supported development is
approved on an ongoing basis.
and funding is vital to achieve this goal. By joining the 100 Club, you can
help ensure SOV continues to fight in a professional and appropriate manner
to help protect your family’s interests and village life whilst at the same
time having a chance to win a cash prize every month!
For those of
you who aren’t familiar with 100 Clubs, the idea is that 100 (more or less)
people participate in a private non commercial small society lottery,
regulated under the Gaming Act 2005 and registered with Uttlesford District
To try and
explain how this works, we have provided answers to a few frequently asked
questions for guidance:
What is a 100 Club?
A 100 Club is a
monthly lottery style prize draw.
How does it
Everyone 16 and
older who enters buys 1 (or more) tickets and each ticket has an equal
chance of winning.
How does the
money get distributed?
Half of the
money goes into the prize fund and the other half goes to SOV
How much are
price is £5, payable either monthly £5 or annually £60 if you prefer. There
is no limit on the number of tickets you can buy and remember the more
tickets you buy the more chance you have of winning.
So what could I win?
The more people
playing, the more you could win! Example is as follows: If 100 people buy 1
x £5 ticket i.e. (per month) then the total amount collected would be £500.
Half of this is payable as prize money split between 1st and 2nd
this could be £175 for the winner and £75 for second if all 100 tickets had
been sold or any variation of a 35/15 split depending on the number of
players fully paid on the actual day of the draw. Wouldn’t that be nice to
How do I
give myself a chance to win the SOV 100 Club prizes?

members can be entered into the draw.
What is the
current prize fund?
SOV100Club has already received a tremendous amount of interest from many
people in the village that not only want to support the cause, but also have
a chance to win the monthly cash prizes. Our goal, is to try and get as many
as possible and hopefully more than 100, but until we have pounded the
pavements and commenced active marketing it is difficult to say at this
point. One thing for sure, it is a great cause, will be a lots of fun and
for two people per month, a nice bonus.
So come on,
sign up, get a standing order set up for SOV and help the village retain its
character and at the same time, you never know it could be you winning the
Henham SOV 100 Club first prize!
