Social responsibility: The Gambling Act 2005 confirms that Wales Air Ambulance has a statutory duty to verify that members and potential members are 16 or over, the minimum age allowed for anyone to play the Lifesaving Lottery. It is an offence for anyone under the age of 16 years to participate in a lottery. Wales Air Ambulance will, where appropriate, carry out checks to verify this requirement, if necessary including seeking confirmation from relevant Agencies who can provide such information. Wales Air Ambulance operates a Society Lottery for the general public in Wales, for the sole purpose of raising funds for The Welsh Air Ambulance Charitable Trust. Wales Air Ambulance is committed to ensuring that the lottery is operated in a secure, fair and socially responsible way and to endorsing responsible gambling amongst its members.
