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 just outside the shop.

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

Upcoming Projects

The 100 Club are planning to pay for materials to build new night quarters for Angola the Secretary Bird later this year. They’re also busy saving funds so that the Trust have a usable amount at their disposal should they need it.

Did you know?
The Secretary Bird’s name could originate from two theories. The first is that it looks are like the old-fashioned secretaries who carried quill pens behind their ears. Alternatively, it could come from the Arabic ‘saqr-et-tair’. Saqr means ‘hunter’ or ‘hawk’ and tair means ‘flight’ or ‘bird’.
