Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I am Chairman of a local Branch of The Motor Neurone Disease Association,

Yesterday some members were selling Raffle tickets at a concert organised by one of our committee members.

Another committee member decided to sell the strip of 5 tickets for a pound. At the draw only the top number was accepted.

When you sell 5 tickets I would assume that you should have 5 chances of winning a Raffle prize.

As Chairman I am responsible for any queries that arise.

I assume that this is breaking the law.

All this was decided in my absence.

I look forward to your advice. I am leaving home in he morning to start my holiday.

Regards,

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
Nicola
