There will be order forms available at the annual club dinner. Ian will be ordering around about the 1st of each month.
The 200 Club has proved very popular in other clubs and groups and is now being offered to LMC members and their families and friends. It offers the chance to enter a monthly draw, with a guaranteed winner every month.
The member (or family/friend member) chooses to pay £5 per month by regular standing order payment and is allocated a number. They keep this number and their number is entered into each monthly draw, as long as the standing order remains valid.
Of course, more than one monthly ‘chance’ can be purchased, with a different number allocated for each £5 payment. So it’s a great opportunity to buy ‘chances’ for each member of your family or buy several ‘chances’ for yourself… SOMEONE WINS EACH MONTH AND IT COULD BE YOU!
The draw also helps the Club with fundraising, with proceeds each month split between LMC Club fundraising, and the winner. The winner receives a cheque for 30% of the month’s proceeds and 70% is retained in Club funds.
Each monthly draw will take place with at least 1 LMC Committee member and 2 other LMC members present, at the monthly social meet or regular climbing meet, and the winner’s name and winning number will be displayed on the LMC website each month.

Here’s a great way to get some fantastic online bargains, find cheaper household services and even book your next holiday, whilst helping us raise money towards our fundraising targets.
So go on, top up your rope collection, buy a new waterproof, treat yourself to that new pair of walking boots, or even just a map or guidebook to help you on the journey (don’t forget a CD for the ride!)
For those weekends at home, there are plenty of offers on DIY products, clothing and lots more from big high street names. You can also buy for your business or home office. For example, you can buy computer equipment, great value broadband or stationery from Euroffice.
Use the search facility to compare a product name (e.g. kettle) with all of our retailers to help you find the best price.
A valid will is the only guaranteed way for your wishes to be carried out and for your legacy to reach the Lancashire Mountaineering Club.
How to make a new will.
Making a will isn’t complicated and needn’t be expensive:
- First, appoint a professional adviser – usually a solicitor or bank.
- Next, work out how much you have to leave, including the total sum of your property, money and possessions, less any outstanding mortgages or loans.
- Decide who you want to benefit from your will. For example, your family, friends and favourite charities or good causes.
- Choose executors to make sure your wishes are carried out. These can be professional advisers, friends or family members – or one of each.
- Finally, keep your will safe and make sure your executors know where to find it. Give one copy to your solicitor or bank.
How to update an existing will
It’s vital to review your will at intervals to ensure it still reflects your wishes and circumstances. For instance, if you move house or get married, or someone mentioned in your will dies, you may need to change it. Speak to your solicitor or bank about the simplest way to revise your will quickly and cost-effectively.
Suggested legacy wording to take to your solicitor:
“I bequeath to the Lancashire Mountaineering Club (‘The LMC’) of The Glen, Sandy Lane, Cranage, Chesire, CW4 8HN, Registered Community Amateur Sports Club CASC 05376, the sum of £_______ (for a pecuniary bequest), or: the residue of my estate (for a residuary bequest) to be used by the LMC at its discretion.”
