Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust has operated a 100 Club lottery since 2004. (Despite the name, the lottery is not restricted to 100 members.)
The funds raised are, according to the 100 Club’s Rules, to be used at the discretion of the Trust Board. The Trust Board has always intended that these funds would be invested in the Club for the benefit of supporters, so long as appropriate terms could be agreed. Such terms were expected to include a substantial shareholding, enabling the Trust to have a meaningful influence on the way the Club is run on behalf of its supporters.
By October 2019, the amount raised had grown to over £40,000 – this is a very significant achievement, and the Trust Board is very grateful to all of the people who have contributed to date.
DHST investment in the Club has produced a Trust shareholding of approximately 19% (at August 2019) – around £30,000 of this investment was provided by the 100 Club. Additional funds are still required to increase the Trust’s current shareholding and influence, so continuing support from new and existing 100 Club contributors is both sought and very much appreciated.
