Member events

As the 500 Club continues to grow, we expect to have a packed schedule of events available for members to attend. Events are FREE unless otherwise stated.

In 2023, we hope to offer quiz nights, yoga, cycling and paddleboarding sessions, walking and outdoor swimming meetups, golf days, a summer party, coffee and cake sessions, and an awards ceremony.

Q:        What if we don’t hit the target by the end of the year?

A:        No problem! During the year, we will do everything they can to help you. There are also other ways to support us, such as volunteering, or providing pro bono services. However, even if you don’t hit your target, we’re still more than happy for you to have another go the year after, (and the year after that!). We know how tough it is running a business and we want each of our members to feel part of our family for as long as they wish.

Q:        I don’t want to fundraise, but I’d like to join, can I just make a monthly or one-off donation instead?

A:        Absolutely! We expect that some of our members will fundraise their target, some will make an annual donation, some might wish to make a monthly donation, and other may choose a mix of fundraising and regular donations. We recognise that each member will be unique and we’re very happy to support each one to get the most out of their membership.

Q:        I’m not really keen on networking but I’d still like to join – is that ok?

A:        Yes! We know that some of our members will be keen to attend our events, some will be more interested in the health and wellbeing services for themselves and employees, and others will be happy to simply to be listed as a member on our website.

Q:        So it sounds like membership is pretty flexible, relaxed and I might even have some fun as a member of the 500 Club – is that right?

A:        Absolutely!

Q:        How do I sign up?

A:        It’s simple, just complete the form below and we’ll be in touch!
