The 100 Club

One of the many benefits of being a Hawk Conservancy Trust member is that you can join the 100 Club. This gives you the opportunity to have ‘a little flutter’ whilst supporting The Trust’s vital conservation work.

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. That’s 39 chances every year per share to win a prize.

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 Pauline and James

We are looking forward to meeting many of the 100 Club members at the exclusive 100 Club evening in May (now fully booked with a waiting list). This promises to be a fabulous evening. We are also looking forward to meeting many Hawk Conservancy Trust members at the Members’ evening in June.

We are excited to share that in March 2023 we agreed that the 100 Club will fund two of the three new aviaries that will be constructed this year. To fund the construction, the 100 Club have donated £16,000 to the Hawk Conservancy Trust. We look forward to the construction of the new aviaries and seeing them in action when complete.

For those who are not aware, each year we have a number of activities to manage the 100 Club.

At the beginning of the year, we meet with Penny Smout (CEO) and Andy Hinton (Head of Development) 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.

Monthly, we perform the draw and post the winners’ numbers and the updated 100 Club finances on this webpage and outside the Trust shop. The cheques are posted to the lucky winners.

We have an annual 100 Club night exclusively for 100 Club members where the Hawk Conservancy Trust Team put on a special evening.

We always look forward to welcoming new members to the 100 Club and we promote the 100 Club at the Trust members’ night.

Upcoming Projects

In 2023 the 100 Club has donated £16,000 to the Hawk Conservancy Trust to fund two of the three new aviaries that will be constructed during the year. We will also fund a trip to Africa later this year for the Vulture Conservation Programme. This is something the 100 Club regularly funded pre-Covid so it is good to be able to support these important trips again.  We will continue to let the rest of the funds build up ready for future donations to the Trust.
