There has never been a better time to join the Histon FC SOS Club. Not only because you will be making a valuable contribution towards the future development of the club but because you will now be in with a chance to win one of three improved cash prizes each month.

The cost of entry remains unchanged but the top prize has increased from the previously underwhelming £60 to a more mouth-watering sum.  The prizes to be won are now:

1st Prize –  £100.00

2nd Prize –  £60.00

3rd Prize –  £40.00

There are even bigger prizes to be won in December as all prizes for the month are doubled!

If you are already a member, may we pass on the thanks of all at the club for your continued commitment to Histon FC. Can we also suggest you consider increasing the number of entries you currently have in the draw, the more numbers you hold, the greater the chances of bagging that top prize!

To help you decide, here are a few answers to questions you may have about membership of the SOS Club:

When is the draw made?

The draw is made in the last week of each month. It usually takes place on the pitch during the half time interval of the 1st team match closest to the month end.  The results are published on the Histon FC website. The draw is made throughout the year, including the closed season.

How much does it cost to join the SOS Club? 

A single entry into the SOS Club costs £5 per month and payment is collected automatically by means of a Standing Order. This means you do not need to remember to make your payment each month and risk missing out on your entry. Your payment is credited to a bank account set up exclusively for handling SOS Club funds.

Can I have more than one entry? 

Yes. You may enter as many times as you wish. Each £5 entry is allocated a numbered disc which is placed into a bag along with all other entries. If the disc carrying the number allocated to your entry is drawn out of the bag, you win a cash prize!

How do I receive my prize?

All prizes are paid by cheque from the dedicated SOS Club bank account within a week of the draw being made. Cheques will be posted to your home address, so be sure to notify us of any changes.

How does Histon FC benefit from my entry?

All income from the SOS Club is split between Histon FC and the prize fund. Membership of the SOS Club has stayed fairly consistent over the past five years or so which has allowed the club to benefit by £200 per month, with the balance forming the prize fund. If SOS Club participation were to increase it would mean more funds can be made available to the club.

How do I join?

You can obtain an entry form from the club shop, from behind the bar or by download from the HIST website at www.hist.org.uk. This form also doubles up as the Standing Order instruction to your bank so once the form is complete you need take no further action other than pass it to your bank.  If you prefer, you can arrange your payment yourself via your internet banking account. Just be sure to let us know you have entered so you can be allocated a number in the monthly draw.

At a time when every penny counts for Histon FC, can we ask you to consider joining the SOS Club and thereby helping the club to be as competitive as possible. If you are already a member, please consider taking out a second or third entry! The club has great plans for the future, including a new 3G pitch and other significant developments at the Glass World Stadium. All of these projects need to be funded and your membership will help these plans come a step closer. With the December draw not far off, a winning cheque for £200 could have your name on it!
