The 100 Club

One of the many perks of being one of our members is that you will receive an invitation to join the 100 Club, giving you an opportunity to have a little fun whilst supporting our vital conservation work a little more. Members of the 100 Club buy shares (at only £5 per month) which are put into a monthly prize draw (with an extra draw in November as a Christmas special). Each month, three winners are drawn to receive £100, £50 or £25, respectively.

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.

A message from Thelma and John

“Each year we have a full timetable of activities to keep the 100 Club running.

“At the beginning of the year, we meet with Penny Smout and Andy Hinton to hear about their exciting plans for the park for the given year. Between us we agree which projects the 100 Club can support during the year, depending on their needs and the funds the 100 Club have available.

“Each month, once Club finances have been updated and a draw carried out, the results are updated here and a paper copy is posted under the wet weather shelter in the Savannah Arena.

“This year’s special evening for 100 Club members was held on Friday 20 July.  Hannah Shaw, Conservation and Research Liaison, gave a presentation then Gary Benton and Ria May entertained us with two flying displays (we were spoilt!), followed by a peep behind the scenes at projects supported by the 100 Club, including the new Burrowing Owls Aviary.  The 100 Club donated £10,000 last year towards the building of this aviary and Thelma and Maddie represented the members at the official opening by Martin Hughes-Games on Sunday 29 July.

“We always look forward to welcoming new members to the 100 Club. For more information, please contact us via hundredclub@hawkconservancy.org.”

Owls have four toes; a permanent back toe and three front toes. One of these front toes can rotate to the front or back to allow owls to improve their grip on their captured prey.
