Getting involved: Members' 100 Club

One of the many perks of being a Member of the Hawk Conservancy Trust is that you become eligible to join the 100 Club. This is a group of Members who want to do that little bit more to support the work of the Hawk Conservancy Trust and their conservation projects but perhaps do not have time to volunteer or live at a distance from the Trust and can’t make regular visits.

100 Club members pay just £5.00 per month for a share in a monthly draw, with an extra draw in November as a Christmas Special.  Payment can be made by cheque or Standing Order, either monthly, quarterly half-yearly or annually, and members can hold as many shares as they wish. 

Each month the winners receive a first prize of £100, a second prize of £50 and a third prize of £25

What a busy and interesting time we had at the Hawk Conservancy Trust Members' Day on Sunday 4th September. Not only did John and I man our 100 Club table and display, but we also acted as an information point, signed up Members to attend talks by Campbell Murn, Matt Stevens, Ryan Stephens and Jimmy Robinson, took bookings for the craft tent and owl pellet dissection, etc., and distributed raffle tickets for audience participation in a special flying display at the end of the day. We were very ably assisted by our daughter Maddie, backed up by HCT staff members Penny Smout, Alice Lowe and Carol Carter. In addition, Jane Simpson, another volunteer, took on the task of signing up Members to act in the Sarson Falconer show at 2.pm. Thankfully, the weather was kind to us and attendance was good. By the end of the day we had recruited two new members for the 100 Club, and may welcome more if any of the application forms are returned to us over the next few weeks. So, all in all, a long but enjoyable day.
