It’s important to us that our Weekly Lottery and raffles are a fun way for you to support RNIB, but that they never have a detrimental effect.
We are committed to operating our Weekly Lottery and raffles in a socially responsible way. We want them to be fun to play, whilst raising charitable funds, but not in a way that is detrimental to the vulnerable - such as low income groups or players under the age of 16 years old. Whilst the majority of people do gamble within their means, for some, gambling can become a problem. It may help you to keep control to remember the following:
If you want to have a break from gambling you can use our self-exclusion option for our Weekly Lottery or raffles by writing to us with your name, address and supporter number(s) at:
We will then close your account(s) for a minimum period of six months, during which time it will not be possible for the account(s) to be re-opened for any reason. The Woods Group operate the lottery and raffles on our behalf as External Lottery Managers.
If you are concerned that gambling may have taken over your (or someone else's) life then the following questions may help you find out:
The more you answer 'yes' to these questions, the more likely you are to have a serious gambling problem.
