As an organisation that works to tackle poverty in the UK as well as overseas, we're extremely committed to making sure we help rather than hinder people who are struggling to make ends meet.
Oxfam operate our Lottery in a secure, fair and socially responsible way. We take steps to manage the risk of vulnerable people taking part, for example we will limit the number of entries per person to a maximum of five per week, that's a maximum of £5 per week that any one player can spend. Players of the Oxfam Lottery must be aged 18 years and over. Charity lotteries are one of the most rigorously regulated forms of fundraising and we are independently licensed by the Gambling Commission. Whilst lotteries are a form of gambling, there is little evidence to suggest that charity
lotteries cause gambling problems. Charity lotteries are a fun way of donating a small amount to a good cause and the prizes are usually a secondary consideration, unlike other forms of gambling.
If anyone is particularly worried about their gambling, and would like to be excluded from future raffles and lotteries, please download, complete and return the Oxfam Self Exclusion Form or please call 0370 058 5944.
Should gambling become a problem we recommend you contact the GambleAware helpline on 0808 8020 133 or visit their website: www.gambleaware.co.uk
