    If they're not paying you, yes. Because, in my opinion (I'm not a legal expert) you fall outside of the scope of the Animal Welfare Regulations. The relevant section is at the start of the 2018 document if you want to check for yourself.

    There is also a government allowance of £1000 for trading income, which means that if you don't earn more than that amount in the course of your activities you're not considered a business, therefore no licence needed.
