100 Club Draw for June 2017
The latest 100 Club prize draw has taken place and we are pleased to announce the winner is Handymans Hardware.
They win the latest £100 quarterly prize following the draw which was made on Friday 7th July during the Informed Choice birthday BBQ celebrations, with the winning number picked by Philip Calvert.
The Cranleigh Christmas 100 Club was initiated in 2000 by Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce as a way of raising money to help finance the Christmas celebrations and late night shopping evening in the village, including the installation of the Christmas lights.
Each year the Committee that organises this event has to raise a considerable amount of money to cover the cost of putting up the lights, repairing and renewing those lights that have broken, erecting Christmas trees and general promotion of the evening.
We face a particularly steep fundraising challenge this year, needing to raise around double our usual target so we can replace the lights in the 17 Maple Trees along the Common.
How can I help?
We are offering a two-year sponsorship for each Maple Tree at a cost of £1,000, with six local businesses already generously pledging their support.
If you would like to find out more about sponsorship opportunities for the Cranleigh Christmas Lights, please call Roger Coupe on 01483 266580 or email Roger@Rogercoupe.com.
There are also sponsorship opportunities available for individual lampposts, at a cost of £75 each, and other options available to suit your budget.
We also encourage as many members as possible to join the 100 Club.
The concept behind the Cranleigh Christmas 100 Club is to secure a membership of companies and individuals who commit to making a contribution of £15 a month (or £180 per annum) by bank standing order.
When fully subscribed with 100 members, the 100 Club would make a substantial contribution of around £17,000 a year towards the running costs of the Christmas Lights.
