Camelot has awarded two National Lottery retailers with £10,000 each in its Site, Stock, Sell quarterly prize draws.

Raksha Patel, owner of Mike’s News in Wimbledon, and Bal Kaur, of Thirlemere Store in Wakefield, have picked up £20,000 between them for their high in-store standards.

Bal, whose store consistently scores high in the programme, said: “It feels brilliant to have won. When I found out, I was on top of the world. It’s great to be recognised for keeping up the in-store standards of the National Lottery.”

Raksha, who is planning to use the money to take her family on holiday, said: “Having the National Lottery in my store is really important as my customers are loyal players and visit my shop to buy other products. That’s why I really look after the National Lottery and maintain high standards, to keep my players coming back.”

The 10-point Site, Stock, Sell initiative is an in-store standards and rewards programme from Camelot. The programme is also accompanied by a bespoke rewards scheme.
