Are You Eligible?

A society is defined as non-commercial if it is established and conducted:
For charitable purposes
For the purpose of enabling participation in, or of supporting, sport, athletics or a cultural activity
For any other non-commercial purpose other than that of private gain.
To remain a Small Society the total value of tickets sold must not exceed £20.000 or tickets in separate lotteries in one calendar year must not exceed £250,000. If you exceed these amounts you will be classed as a Large Lottery and will need a licence issued by the Gambling Commission.
