Gambling provides a source of funding for community groups

Gambling and lottery activities provide funds for community groups through grants. Application forms are available from societies (typically via a website), some community networks such as Citizens' Advice Bureaux, and often at gaming machine venues.

You must send your application directly to the society and not through a venue. Also, the society must deal with you directly and not communicate with you through the venue.
