About the 200 Club

About the 200 Club

Province 6’s 200 Club was formed just over 40 years ago and has about 250 members — it’s an Irish 200 club! It’s only purpose is to support the Bursary Fund which provides financial support to young Catholics who are performing various charitable good works worldwide such as teaching English or helping to build schools, toilet blocks and hospitals in deprived areas of the world. They also help with the sick at Lourdes. Our support helps them to see how other societies live and maybe appreciate how lucky they are. It might even open up a career they had not thought about.

What does it cost to join the 200 Club? Just £12 a year, payable by standing order. Of your £12, apart from a little for postage, roughly half goes to the Bursary and the other half in prizes. We award four prizes each month: £70, £45, £30 and £20. (Prizes will increase if the number of members increases.)

To join, contact Brother Denis Heaney, City of Lichfield Circle.
