Set up a JustGiving page for your fundraising
Get your fundraising started and set up a JustGiving page. It is super simple and quick to do.
Hosting a raffle can be a great way to raise funds, however, there are many rules around raffles so it is important you gather all the information and make sure yours is legal.
If your raffle or draw is held within a 24-hour period, is in one single venue and is part of another event, you can use cloakroom tickets. This type of raffle is known as an 'incidental lottery'.
If your raffle doesn't sound like the above it could be classed as a 'Small Society Lottery' you will need a local lottery licence and printed tickets, as there are things that must be legally printed on each ticket. There are some minor exceptions to not needing a licence which are listed on the Gambling Commission website.
For more information surrounding the rules of raffles you can visit the Gambling Commission website. However, if you are ever unsure we would recommend keeping it simple: keep your raffles, part of an event, over one day at one venue.
