SVP 100 Club will resume in January 2021. Please keep a watch out for details.

SVP – 100 Club Bank details: 100 Club, FNB Bank, Branch Code 200412, Account Nr 626 759 961 63.
A word on The 100 Club and changes for 2020. There has been some talk and confusion over the 100 Club, which seems to have become very prominent of late. The proceeds from the original 100 Club run in the Parish were split between SVP and Parish funds in a ratio of 50/50. Three years ago SVP took over the running of the 100 Club and it was re-organized and re-launched, with Lyn Bouchier and Pauline McCarthy running it.
At hte time everyone who joined signed a commitment form which clearly stated that the funds raised were for SVP. This has been the case for the last three years and the proceeds have gone to SVP projects.
As the Parish is in need of funds SVP feels that the Parish finances should take precedence and therefore in the new year, SVP will hand over the running of the 100 Club to the Parish and the new Parish committee.
SVP would like to thank all for the support of The 100 Club over the last three years. And ask that you continue to support it in the new year.
