The 1001 Club – monthly draw
The 1001 Club is the Welfare Fund’s own lottery draw, which hands out hundreds of pounds to lucky prize winners every month.
  • Membership costs just £2.00 per month
  • You can pay for 6 or 12 draws
  • All proceeds benefit the Welfare Fund
Every month 50% of the total 1001 Club income is given to the NFOP Welfare Fund for the provision of grants. The remaining 50% makes up the 1001 Club ‘Prize Fund’ and is split across first (50%), second (30%) and third (10%) prize. A 6 month boost (10%) is added to the July or January 1st Prize win.

You can join the 1001 Club by completing the returning the 1001 Club application leaflet along with a cheque for either 6 draws (£12) or 12 draws (£24) made out to the NFOP Welfare Fund.

How the Welfare Fund works
The National Federation of Occupational Pensioners’ Welfare Fund is a registered charity (Registered Charity No.1053576). The Fund is administered by four Trustees who are the National Chairman of the Federation, the CEO, plus two Trustees nominated by the National Executive Committee of the Federation. The Trustees are responsible for determining the guidelines, which ensure that the funds are administered appropriately and for appointing the Welfare Committee to deal with claims upon the Fund. The Committee consider each application on its own merits as quickly as possible to minimise delays. The Welfare Fund holds an Annual General Meeting at the NFOP Annual Conference. Eligibility for applicants is membership of NFOP and, retired BT and PO employees.

Committee Secretary: June Lee
