The 200 Club is a fun way of helping raise money for the local Labour Party for as little as 50 pence per week.
Here’s how it works. Every member who pays £6.50 a quarter via a bank standing order is entered into a regular prize draw. Half the money is paid out in prize money; the other half is distributed pro rata according to which bits of Labour the Club members come from (at the moment, that’s Canterbury CLP and Herne Bay LP branch).
HOWEVER – the pandemic has affected the 200 Club, as it has hit so much else! The Canterbury CLP Treasurer was in the process of handing over the running of the 200 Club (which is more complicated than you might think) to John Walder, when we were rudely interrupted by COVID-19.
Most of the quarterly standing orders have continued, but no draws have been possible; and they won’t be possible until face-to-face Labour Party meetings have resumed, and John has had the rest of his handover. That means: the prize fund is building up, and the first draw will have bigger prizes than ever before.
For more information please contact John Walder ( [email protected] ) – but remember that (depending on what you ask) he might not be able to answer some questions yet, because that handover has started but not finished!
