Lanimer Silver Club

2007 Silver Club winner Steve Bouchard from Jersey being presented with his £1,000 cheque by Jennifer Forrest.

£10 for 12 monthly draws

The Silver Club, begun in the 1980s, helps Lanimer fundraising through Lanark Lanimer Committee. It is a major contributor in raising the £35 000+ to stage our annual traditional Lanimer events.

Lanark folk continue to be generous, despite hard times, helping to keep alive our Lanimer Week traditions. Many can also testify that a £10 Silver Club ticket can be profitable! Every ticket is entered in 12 monthly draws, from January.10 draws have a top prize of £100. In December the top prize is £1,000 and, in June, the draw on Marches Night at the Cross produces five £1,000 winners.

We are always keen to attract new members, particularly among those new to the town and its latest developments, but we never forget our loyal old friends. Please respond positively when our agents call. Our volunteers are vital to sustaining our Silver Club membership, renewable each year.

We know that times are hard and even £10 is a big consideration in a family’s outlay, but think of what you get for your money. Young and old get a week of exercise and fun: walking the Marches; carrying the Birks; entertaining at the Cross and the Reception; riding in processions and racing on the old racecourse; joining in the fun at the children’s races and Lanimer afternoon at Castlebank. Then there are those unique memories generated by taking part in the Lanimer Court and, of course, being part of that great procession as it snakes slowly round the town.

The coldest, wettest day never dampens the spirits of the faces alongside their ‘Lorry’, with pals all dressed up and ready to show off to those filling Lanark’s streets ... and you don’t have to organise any of this! Just join in …Say, ‘Yes!’ when the agent calls, and take the best value for money gamble ever! Big prizes, great entertainment, a week of community spirit and happy kids – all for just £10.
