The Three Hundred Club is the Trust’s lottery held every January, April, July and October.
The Winter 2016 Three Hundred Club draw recently took place at Cotswold Canals Trust Western Depot at Eastington.
The draw was made by Lionel Lusty pictured below. Lionel, a former member of the Western Depot Logging Team, happens to have been the only Logging Team member not to be a member of the Three Hundred Club.
Fittingly therefore, it fell to Lionel to press the Winter Winner’s Selection button.
A little more on ‘Logging’
Since its inception in December 2009 the Western Depot Logging Team processed hundreds of tonnes of timber into logs to heat homes in and around Stroud.
Having done all that sawing, splitting and stacking, the team made over 900 deliveries to more than 250 customers.
The energy and dedication applied by the Logging Team has generated over £100,000 for the Cotswold Canals Trust restoration.
Sadly the Western Depot Logging Team recently called it a day. Hopefully other volunteers will come forward to reinstate the operation in the future.
