Following on from last week’s announcement that retailers can win a share of £50,000 through Camelot’s EuroMillions HotPicks incentive, it has been revealed that NFRN member Tariq Perwez from Cardiff has become the first winner of £5,000!

Tariq has worked in his shop in Cardiff for the last 38 years. His family business, originally owned by his father, provides a vital service for his local community in the Welsh capital.

Tariq said he was over the moon with this win, “It’s still not really sunk in, I didn’t believe it at first. I even tried to ring back to double-check!”

Retailers are still in with a chance of a Christmas treat with another £5,000 prize still up for grabs with the next draw that closes on Tuesday 19 December – five retailers will win £1,000 and one lucky retailer will walk away with a whopping £5,000.

There’ll still be plenty to celebrate in the New Year too as in January 2018 we’ll see another ten £1,000 winners and an amazing grand prize of £20,000 prize scooped!
