I’m interested in holding a raffle or lottery for World Cancer Research Fund. Are there rules around this? Holding a raffle or a lottery can be a really effective way to raise funds for our vital work. This area is one of the most heavily regulated in fundraising. If you’re planning to hold a raffle or a lottery, there are certain regulations that must be followed. You can read more about these on the Institute of Fundraising website and on the Gambling Commission website. If you have any further questions, call our Fundraising Team on 020 7343 4200.
