The "Firefighters 100 Lottery" was born out of plans to mark the centenary of the Fire Brigades Union. It is set up to help commemorate the bravery and sacrifice of firefighters killed and injured in the line of duty and to establish a fund for the future benefit of firefighters, their bereaved families and the firefighting profession.
The Firefighters 100 Lottery Fund shall be administered appropriately by the Fire Brigades Union for the future benefit of all firefighters and their bereaved families in accordance with the following good cause criteria:
The Firefighters 100 Lottery is a weekly, on-line lottery licenced by the Gambling Commission. It is open to the wider fire and rescue community and the public to play. The sale of tickets, the weekly draws and the paying-out of prizes are all undertaken independently of the Fire Brigades Union by an external lottery management company, also licenced by the Gambling Commission.
A ticket for the Firefighters 100 Lottery costs £1 per week and at least 50p will go to the good causes.
Players can buy as many tickets as they wish every week and can choose their own numbers or select a lucky dip.
There are measures to protect children and vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling. The Fire Brigades Union is also a member of the Lotteries Council and through them contributes to the Responsible Gambling Trust (RGT), the leading charity in the UK committed to minimising gambling-related harm.
