Queens Award
  1. The Lottery will operate as a Small Lottery as defined by the Gambling Act 2005 and is registered with North Somerset Council, licence no. NSC/025930.

  2. The object of the Lottery is to raise funds for MARLENS to secure, preserve, protect, develop and improve Clevedon Marine Lake and its surrounding area.

  3. The Lottery shall be administrated by the Trustees of Marine Lake Enthusiasts (MARLENS) which is a registered charity no. 1156426. The Trustees shall have the power to amend or revoke these rules at their absolute discretion with such reasonable notice to the Lottery members as is necessary.

  4. The Lottery is open to anyone over 16 years of age. An application form must be completed and can be submitted on-line. A member is then eligible for inclusion in the Lottery draw, so long as the subscription for the month has been received by the last working day of that month.

  5. The subscription to the Lottery for one number shall be £60 per year, payable in advance, or £5 per month payable by monthly standing order. This will give members one number which will be placed in 12 draws (i.e. cost is £5.00 per month). This number shall remain the member’s provided their subscription is up to date. Members may have multiple subscriptions.

  6. The Lottery will be run on a rolling monthly basis commencing in September. New members may enter the Lottery at any time during the year.

  7. Registers will be kept recording name and address and also telephone number and email address where available, of each member, the number(s) allocated to them and the subscriptions received from them. This information is required to administer the lottery, and to contact prize winners.

  8. The draw for each month will be made within the following month in the presence of at least three people including one Trustee.

  9. The regular monthly prize fund will be up to 50% of monthly income. By way of example, with 100 members the prize fund is £250, 50% of 100 x £5, split as illustrated below. As more members join, more prizes will be paid. Prizes will be adjusted each month to reflect the number of members at the time of the draw.

    1. 1st Prize = £100

    2. 2nd Prize = £75

    3. 3rd Prize = £50

    4. 4th Prize = £25

  10. Prize winners will be notified and details of prize winners will be published on MARLENS Facebook page each month after the draw.

  11. Prizes will be paid by cheque or internet banking, whichever is the winner’s preference. All winners will be contacted using the contact details provided on the application form, so please advise any subsequent change of details. All reasonable efforts will be made, but if a winner cannot be contacted, the winnings will be placed into MARLENS funds after 6 months.
