Fundraising within the district

The District has a Calderdale Council “Small Lotteries” Licence; if you intend fundraising using a “raffle”, please contact Chris Jay for details.

In simple terms a small lottery is a kind of gambling that has three essential elements:

  • payment is required to participate,
  • one or more prizes are awarded, and
  • those prizes are awarded by chance.

As these rules apply to raffles, you need a licence to do one.

If you are unsure if your fundraising activity requires a licence, please contact Chris Jay to check.
