If tickets are sold only at the event where the raffle is drawn, no licence is required. The value of prizes donated should not exceed £250 but there is no limit to the value of donation prizes. Where tickets are sold in advance of the event, the organisation running the raffle must obtain a small lottery licence. Melvich Community SCIO holds a small lottery licence.
A 100 Club is a local private lottery, with a percentage of the income used to fund small cash prizes monthly. It is a good way to raise funds. It operates under a set of rules and our operation of it is covered under our small lottery licence.
