Just seen on Facebook that Chris from Alpher Instruments is offering a chance to win an Alpher Mini Mako 30 inch scale bass for just £10 and help musicians struggling as a result of the pandemic. This raffle is available worldwide with shipping included. 
 
It costs £10 per ticket, with all proceeds going to helpmusicians.org.uk
 
 
Nice one Chris - a great gesture...

No doubt run in good faith, but they should confirm if it's legal etc as there are various rules.  E.g. "people can genuinely choose to take part without paying" https://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/for-the-public/Safer-gambling/Consumer-guides/Running-prize-competitions-and-free-draws.aspx

Tricky one raffles.  They are running it to benefit a registered charity so they should be ok.  Fairly sure if it's run online they need to register with their local authority.  Could easily be wrong though. 

Tempting to enter regardless.

i saw this last night, from what i could see it is clearly advertised as a raffle for a charity, I hope it is all above board as i bought 2 tickets!

If Chris is involved I'm sure that it will be kosher! I bought a couple of tickets last night.

Amazing thing for Chris and Alex to do, and the mini-Makos are lovely little basses as well!

Don't get Prize Draw confused with a Raffle; Raffles are lawful when the beneficiary of the lottery is a charity, which in this case it is 100%.  I don't think you need a license either, unless it reaches a Threshold, which is definitely some way above what Chris will get here.

Have full faith that Alpher will know exactly what they are doing :)

Yes, I think you're probably right.

In general... I'd exercise caution of social media lotteries as it's too easy for the less-scrupulous organiser to skim or fix.

Clearly not the case here though; good to see many vouching for Alpher, and best of luck to all entering the draw.
