FAQ’S

Do we need a lottery licence to run a raffle at our fair?

In most cases a raffle will held at the same time as the event. If it is please note the following.

If running a raffle where tickets are NOT sold before the event, this falls under the terms of an ‘incidental non-commercial lottery’. As such, you will not require a licence or any specific permissions or a charity number. However, you must adhere to the following rules:

All tickets must be sold at the location during the event and the result made public while the event takes place.

The promoters of the lottery cannot deduct more than £100 from the proceeds in expenses incurred, such as for the cost of printing tickets, hire of equipment, etc.

No more than £500 can be spent on prizes (but other prizes may be donated) and the raffle cannot involve a roll-over of prizes.

If selling tickets prior to the event, this falls under the terms of a ‘small society lottery’ and a licence is required – see below.

Do you have any collection tins we can use to collect money, any bands we can sell?

Yes we do but, what we lack are the resources to send out the items, re fill them, collect the cash and then bank the cash. We are working on getting a group of volunteers together who will help and have sole responsibility for this area.
