Small society lotteries
If you intend to sell raffle tickets before the day of the prize draw, you must register as a ‘small society lottery’.
Small society lotteries are lotteries held to raise funds for a non-commercial society. A society is non-commercial if it is run for:
- charitable purposes
- to enable participation in, or support, sport, athletics or cultural activities
- any other non-commercial purpose other than that of private gain.
Societies who run small society lotteries (where less than £20,000 worth of tickets are put on sale and the society's combined funds raised from lotteries do not exceed £250,000 a year) may operate without a Gambling Commission licence provided they register with Telford & Wrekin Council.
There is an initial fee of £40 to register and an annual fee of £20. The annual fee must be paid within the period of two months which ends immediately before each anniversary of the registration.
An application to register a Small Society Lottery should be accompanied by a copy of the Society's Terms and Conditions and Constitution.
