The 100 Club
from Phil Robinson
Old Wymondhamians 100 Club Appeal -updated October 2010
In the 7 years [since Oct 2003] that we have been running the 100 Club it has been the main source of income for the Old Wymondhamians [formerly the Wymondham College Association]. It has taken some time to reach the magic 100 members but we are just about there now. We will, therefore, soon have to decide how we deal with the 101st member!
The 100 Club is currently generating in the region of £3,000 annually. A considerable portion of this is required to fund the production of the yearly Newsletter and support the Wymondham College Remembered website [so expertly set up and run by Bill Atkins for a number of years and which is now administered by Julie Harding [nee Ebbens]. However, where we have had a surplus, donations to the college have been made. The first donation was a contribution to the cost of producing the College Hymn book and a second commitment has recently been made relating to the cost of the proposed Heritage Trail.
Over the years we have been very fortunate that the College has supported us by the provision of the Alumni Secretary. Caroline Hall continues to provide an invaluable link between the College and the Old Wymondhamians.
Steve Read [the Treasurer] and I meet on a monthly basis at hostelries within Norfolk to sup some of the excellent real ales on offer. A number of you have joined us over the years and there is statistical evidence that attendance at the draw, leads to a win shortly afterwards! If you have a local that you would like us to visit, please let us know. However the only way of effectively advising people of where/when we meet is by e-mail. If you wish to be kept advised of the monthly meetings and who has won, and you also have access to the Internet/e-mail, please contact me so that I can add you to the list.
Subscription is still only £5.00 per month and there are two monthly prizes of £50. There is also the possibility of winning one of the two star prizes of £500 and £200 (in June and December – just in time to help with the expensive Christmas presents!). For those of you who may wish to join, the monthly payment can be made by Standing Order but we are happy to accept yearly payments of £60.00 from anyone who would prefer to subscribe in that way.
