An invitation to join MBCL 200 Club


Market Bosworth Community Library needs to raise funds to maintain and improve the facilities on offer at the library. By joining the 200 Club you can help to ensure that Market Bosworth Community Library remains open in the long term as a resource for all residents in our community. You also have a chance of winning a cash prize every month!

The Market Bosworth Community Library 200 Club is a small society lottery as defined by the Gambling Act 2005, registered with HBBC, and is open to all residents of the Market Bosworth district and their family and friends. You must be over 16 to join.

Each month:

There is a draw for 50% of the income. This amount is divided between three lucky winners. The fund is made up as follows:

1st Prize – 25% of the income

2nd Prize – 15% of the income

3rd Prize – 10% of the income

Therefore, if we have 200 members, each paying £1 per month, prizes will be £50, £30 and £20 respectively.

You can – and are encouraged – to buy more than one number per month.

Payments are made annually, in advance i.e. £12 per number per year.

The more people who buy into the club - the higher the prize money.
