June draw of the 50/50 Club


<<Return to news

The June draw was made in the sunshine, to the background of superb ringing, in Cambridge, where the final of the 12-bell striking contest was held. The top three bands from each of the three regional heats make the finals, together with the band of the tower chosen for the competition. Ringing tends to be extremely good (and can be heard on youtube) and it’s a very festive gathering, with several hundred more attending than the 120 competitors, enjoying meeting up with old and new friends, morning bacon butties, lunchtime baguettes, ice-cream, and beer!

Three children in the audience of some 600 ringers drew the tickets:

  • 1st prize of £68, won by Michael Penney, Derby
  • 2nd prize of £34, won by Mike Rigby, Warwick
  • 3rd prize of £34, won by Jane Craddock, Cardiff

There are currently 75 members of the club, which donated £649 towards ART's running costs last year and gave out the same amount in prizes.

It's easy to join. Please do join, and encourage others: teachers and people being taught, to help give something back to ringing!
