World Cup Bonus Ball Fund-raiser starts this Saturday !

6 months ago By Shelagh Entwisle

New #OneClubFourSports fund-raiser starts this weekend - help raise funds for a new TV and the chance to win a weekly cash prize !

This weekend signals the start of Timperley Sports Clubs new fund-raiser World Cup Bonus Ball. With just 20 weeks until the start of the Russian summer of football, Jane, Sam and the bar team will be running a Bonus Ball every week on the run up to the start of the tournament. Its also the Women's Hockey World Cup in London this summer so the TV will be great for viewing those key games too !

Numbers are available at either £1 per number per week or £20 up front for the full duration of all the draws. Many of you may remember the old hockey bonus ball that we ran for many years and the £1 in the pint pot weekly draw - the World Cup Draw will be using the same format.

Should that number appear as that Saturday night's National Lottery bonus ball, then whoever holds that number will win the £30 prize pot for that week. All surpluses raised (after prizes) will go to TSC and go directly towards the purchase of a brand new even larger 9and easier to see!) TV for the lounge in preparation for the World Cup.

Please support this #OneClubFourSports fund-raiser - the Club hopes this is an initiative that a large proportion of our members will buy into, with the club taking no direct monies from this draw and every pound raised outside of prize money going straight to a new TV for the members. Its our club so lets help make a difference over the coming weeks !

To join please come and see Jane or Sam behind the bar, as always we take cash or card!
