Spiritualists Good Friday Rally 2017  Spiritualists Good Friday Rally - 100 Club legal information

About the 100 club

The 100 Club has been started to allow Spiritualists to support The ONGOING Spiritualist Good Friday Rally.

It was drawn last month for the first time and Kim was the winner. The 100 club will continue to run, each and every month in order to bring a prize winner every month and also to put a regular amount of money into the fundraising for future Spiritualists Good Friday Rally´s.

This months will be drawn at The Good Friday Rally, on 30th March, at the end of the Evening Service. YOU could be receiving your winnings from Billy Cook!

For a £1.00, or more, shareholding each month those who have entered the 100 club will have their total of £1.00 shares put into the DRAW. The winner will receive half the total amount in the Fund for that month. For example if there is 50 in paid shares, then the winner receives £25. If there is 90 in paid shares the winner receives £45. And the number is drawn electronically, no papers in a hat!

We are aiming for a total of 200 shares, but like all things you start small and build your numbers through the sheer excitement of winning!

There is no upper limit set, so far, on how many £1.00 shares you can hold. To be honest I found the Guidelines, a bit like those ´Terms and Conditions´ you see when you are either online or on your mobile and you are wanting to race through them to get to where you wish to join. But they have been based on The Stevenage Borough Council´s guidelines and another well run local 100 club rules.

So please don´t let the lengthy wording put you off joining for a monthly little flutter for a win! Support Spiritualists, join the 100 Club.

Guidance for Small Society Lotteries

From 1 September 2007 small societies are required to register with their Local Authority under the Gambling Act 2005 to run small society lotteries.

Small Society Lotteries

Small Society lotteries are lotteries promoted for the benefit of a non-commercial society. A society is non-commercial it is established and conducted:
  • For charitable purposes
  • For the purpose of enabling participation in, or of supporting, sport, athletics or a cultural activity, or
  • For any other non-commercial purpose other than that of private gain
Societies who run small society lotteries, that is to say lotteries which are not large lotteries, essentially those in which £20,000 (or less) worth of tickets are put on sale and where the society´s aggregate proceeds from lotteries do not exceed £25,000 a year, are required to register with their Local Authority, in the area where their principal office is located.

Definition of a Lottery

An arrangement is a simple lottery if:
  • People pay to take part
  • One or more prizes can be won
  • The winners are chosen wholly on chance (defined in section 14(5) of the Act).
Registering the lottery

A small society lottery must, throughout the period during which the lottery is promoted, be registered with a Licensing Authority.

An application for a small society registration must be in the prescribed form, accompanied by the prescribed fee and the documents listed on the form.

The Licensing Authority may ask a new applicant to provide copies of their terms and conditions, their constitution or a declaration to establish they are a non-commercial society. The Gambling Act 2005 sets out the grounds on which a Licensing Authority can refuse an application.

Licensing Authorities are required to record the details of a society on a register. Registrations run for an unlimited period unless the registration is cancelled.

Management & Operation of a Lottery

As the purpose of the lottery is to raise money for non-commercial causes, the Act requires that a minimum proportion of the money raised is channelled to the causes promoted by the lottery. The limits placed on small society lotteries are as follows:
  • A society must apply a minimum of 20% of the gross proceeds of each lottery directly to the purposes of the society
  • Up to a maximum of 80% of the gross proceeds of each lottery may be divided between prizes and the expenses of the lottery
  • The maximum prize in a single lottery is £25,000 or 10% of the proceeds (gross ticket sales) whichever is greater
  • Rollovers are permitted provided the maximum single prize limit (£25,000) is not breached
  • Every ticket in the lottery must be the same price and the cost of purchased tickets must be paid to the society before entry into the draw allowed. There is no maximum limit on ticket prices.
Ticket information

All tickets in a society lottery registered with a local authority must state:
  • The name of the society on whose behalf the lotter is being promoted
  • The price of the ticket
  • The name and address of the member of the society responsible for the promotion of the lottery
  • The date of the draw
Tickets which are issued through a form of remote communication or in any other electronic manner must specify this information to the purchaser of the ticket and ensure that the message can be either retained or printed.

All small society lottery operations must maintain a written record of any unsold and returned tickets for a period of one year, from the date of the lottery draw.

Sale of Tickets

Tickets can only be sold to persons over the age of 16 years.

Tickets must not be sold to any person in a street. Tickets may be sold by a person in a kiosk or shop premises (have no space for the accommodation of customers) or from door to door. The Act defines a street as any bridge road, lane, footway, subway, square, court, alley or passage (including passages through enclosed premises such as shopping malls) whether a thoroughfare or not.

Lottery returns

Every society registered with a local authority to run small society lotteries must submit a statement providing the following information, following each lottery held:
  • The date on which tickets were available for sale or supply and the date of the draw
  • The total proceeds of the lottery
  • The amounts deducted by promoters of the lottery in providing prizes, including rollovers
  • The amounts deducted by the promoters of the lottery in respect of costs incurred in organising the lottery
  • The amount applied directly to the purpose for which the promoting society is conducted (at least 20% of the gross proceeds).
