An independent retailer from Glasgow is celebrating his store’s National Lottery customers, who have raised more than £2.2m for good causes since the lottery’s launch in 1994.

Mohammed Rajak (Jack) of Day Today, Dalmarnock Road in Glasgow, was presented with a plaque to mark the achievement by Camelot chief executive Nigel Railton.

Jack said he was delighted that he and his customers had been able to make such a difference to people and projects across the UK.

The store has been in Jack’s family for many years and has had The National Lottery since the first draw 24 years ago.

Each week, National Lottery players raise around £30m for Good Causes.

Over £37bn has now been raised and more than 525,000 individual grants have been made across the UK - that’s around 185 projects in every postcode area.
