The 200 Club – a new fundraising initiative for the branch – got off to a cracking start with 50 subscriptions for the first ever draw made at our branch meeting on 26 May.
Gabriel Sullivan (Tony and Jan Vaughan’s grandson) helped place the numbered balls for this month’s members in the drum.
Our guest speaker, Lesley Mathieson, then drew the winning balls.
The prize fund totaled £100 this month and the contribution towards the Club’s donation to Parkinson’s UK research and support was £150 less costs.
May winners were:
Drawn in reverse order …
Third prizes (two x £12) – Brian Reeve and Val Washbourne
Second prize (£25) – Nick Owen
First prize (£50) – Cathi Grainger
Congratulations to all!

John said “If we all help take it out to the wider community it will make a huge difference to the amount of money we raise for Parkinson’s research and support.”
