It's been a busy few months for us all since we met in May on our Member Zoom meetings and we are looking forward to catching up again in person at the HLA Conference in September. 

Over recent weeks there have been a couple of updates from the Gambling Commission and we have launched our very own Raffles Questionnaire following discussions at the May meetings. We also have an exciting opportunity to join our HLA Board of Directors!

Spring Raffle Questionnaire

The HLA recently launched a Spring Raffle Questionnaire to allow members to share statistics from their recent raffles to benchmark against other member raffles.

The questionnaire results will be collated following the closing date on Friday 2nd September and shared at the HLA Conference in September as well as at future member meetings.

The Responsible Gambling Trust would like to thank all the members of the Hospice Lotteries Association for supporting our work to address gambling-related harm. We are very grateful for the donation that HLA makes on your behalf each year, which is invaluable in helping us to fund and commission research, harm-prevention and treatment services, and provide the GambleAware website which provides information to help people make informed decisions about their gambling.
