Milton Abbas Village Web Site

St James Church

The St James' and Almshouses 180 Club was formed to provide some financial support towards the ongoing costly repair and maintenance of St James' Church and the Tregonwell Almshouse Trust.

A quarterly draw is held with the winning numbers published in The Bulletin ( and below on this page. You can win a cash prize from £10 to £50 from a total prize fund for each draw of £250 (subject to there being enough members to justify it). To be included in these draws you need to have purchased a number, the cost of which is £1 per month (collected annually in advance).


Approximately 50% of the proceeds is re-distributed via the quarterly draws with the balance donated to the two beneficiaries once a year. Surplus proceeds are donated equally to each organisation - typically £500 each, but the actual amount is subject to sufficient numbers having been bought in the first instance.

As people occasionally leave the village there are usually a few spare numbers available, so if you would like to be included in the draw and at the same time make a small but positive contribution to the upkeep of two of our most historic buildings then please contact me, Nigel Hodder, on 01258 880229 or by email at
