1874 Supporters Club

Welcome to our new Supporters Club – a great way for members to support us whilst having a bit of a flutter! Here’s how it works…

You decide your monthly commitment and follow the relevant link to complete your Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Supporters form and sign up via direct debit – payments will be collected via GoCardless on the last day of each month.

Depending on your monthly contribution you will be allocated 3, 5, 10 or 15 numbers which are entered into the monthly draw. All participants must be over 16.

The draw will take place at the monthly Club Committee meeting on the 1st Monday of each month. In the event that a Committee meeting does not take place the draw will be conducted by the Club Secretary (or such other member of the Committee as they shall direct) on or before the 7th day of each month.

If you win, you will be contacted by the Club Treasurer to arrange an electronic transfer to the same account from which your direct debit was made and the name of the winner published on the Club Facebook page and website.

The prize money will be 45% of the membership fee taken that month. The remaining 55% goes to the Club to help fund equipment, resources and opportunities for members and potential members.

Any queries, please contact Club Secretary via email at secretary@richmondhockeyclub.com
