The Government has published the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England)Regulations 2018 under section 13 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006. The effect of the new regulations is to replace some existing licensing regimes and to put in place a new licensing regime to control certain licensed animal activities.
Small society lotteries are lotteries promoted for the benefit of a non-commercial society. A society is non-profitable if it is run for charitable purposes. It allows the society to take part in or support sport, athletics, cultural activities and any other non-commercial purpose, as long as it's not for private/personal gain.
The licence covers tickets sales for a single lottery of up to £20,000 with yearly sales of up to £250,000. Anything above this would need to be licensed by the Gambling Commision.
