It’s important to us that our Weekly Prize Draws and raffles are a fun way for you to support Hospiscare, but that they never have a detrimental effect.
Our commitment to responsible gaming
We are committed to operating our Weekly Prize Draw 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:
- Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a way of making money
- Avoid chasing losses
- Only gamble what you can afford to lose
- Keep track of the time and amount you spend gambling.
