The club is formed for fund-raising purposes and all proceeds raised by the club, after provision of prizes and expenses, are devoted to the Objects of the DFWI.
There is a minimum of 300 shares which can be held singly or in multiples. Some years the club can be called 300+, 400+ or 500+ as the total of members applying can vary from year to year.
Shares are available annually at £5 to members only at the start of each year in January by way of an application enclosure sent to every WI. Draws take place each month at a Board of Trustees meeting with special draws for Council Meetings. Prize-winners’ names are published in Devon WI News or by application to the Federation office.

If you are interested in having a 500+ Club share, and would like more information, you can either contact your WI Secretary or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
