Shop owner Geoff Scally was delighted to get the call from the National Lottery to say that his store sold the winning top prize ticket.

“What a way to start the new year! We have a team of 32 working in the shop and I know that as soon as word spreads, the entire team will be thrilled as this is the biggest prize that we have ever sold," Mr Scally said. "We have a real mix of local and commuting trade so let’s hope the winner checks their ticket soon and realises that they have kicked their 2022 off as a millionaire. There are sure to be celebrations with this news!”
