What is the 200 Club?
This is a small lottery supporting St Mary's Parish Church in Knaresborough.
Each number you purchase entitles you to an entry in the monthly draw.
Net proceeds are donated to the parish building loan fund at the end of every calendar year.
You will also be entitled to entry into the Christmas draw if you have paid into the club for the 12 months prior.
There are 4 cash prizes on offer each month plus another 20 superb prizes available in the Christmas draw.
Numbers are £2 each.
How am I supporting my Parish?
At the end of the financial year the funds contributed throughout the year (after any expenses and prize money) are given to the parish building loan fund.
Over the past few years this has been a valued contribution toward:
- 2001 St Mary's Church refurbishment
- 2014 The Old School refurbishment
- 2017 St Mary's Church refurbishment
- 2021 onwards these funds are likely to support vital repairs required to the Church floor.
Note: The fundraising total for 2020 will be presented to the parish at an upcoming presentation following mass.
The website will be updated with this sum once this has taken place.

When are the draws run?
The 12 monthly draws are run each month, on a Sunday usually, to follow the end of the previous calendar month. This allows us to check who is eligible for the draw.
The Christmas draw is run at the end of December. To be eligible for the Christmas draw you need to have paid for a number for 12 months prior to the draw taking place.
Each draw (from April 2020) is run using a computer and a randomiser to select the winning numbers. Each draw is recorded, and a copy held by the Finance Committee.
