This week, features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editor Emily Burt discuss charity lotteries.

In the Fundraising Regulator's latest annual complaints report, published in September, lotteries featured on the list of the top 10 most complained-about fundraising methods for the first time.

Rebecca and Emily speak to Gerald Oppenheim, chief executive of the Fundraising Regulator, about the nature of the complaints and what might have caused the increase in the number of people complaining to the regulator.

They are also joined by Carmel Hudson, lottery manager at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, to talk about the benefits of lotteries and how charities can avoid complaints.

This week's good news bulletin looks at the rise of donations in lieu of Christmas cards.
