Cel­e­brat­ing love and lotto with new ad­vert

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

» A COTSWOLD cou­ple are be­ing fea­tured in a spe­cial Na­tional Lot­tery ad­vert for St Valen­tine’s Day. Jon and Michaela Maslen­jones are the proud own­ers of Stow News Post Of­fice in Stow-on-the-wold. They were se­lected from dozens of re­tailer cou­ples to star in the new Lotto ad­vert, which will first air on 7 Fe­bru­ary and will be seen on TV screens across the UK right up un­til the Valen­tine’s Su­per­draw on Fe­bru­ary 13. “The day was amaz­ing from start to fin­ish,” said Michaela. “It was very long, but a re­ally good ex­pe­ri­ence. I could not be­lieve the work that goes into mak­ing such a short ad­vert. There were so many peo­ple there to make it hap­pen – the cam­era crew, di­rec­tor, pro­duc­ers and every­body else.” “We’d pre­vi­ously said that if we were to win the lot­tery, we’d move to the Cotswolds. We didn’t end up win­ning the lot­tery, but we sold our house and bought the busi­ness, en­abling us to move to the Cotswolds.” Camelot’s re­tail part­ners – like Jon and Michaela – help to raise around £30 mil­lion ev­ery sin­gle week for Good Cause projects up and down the UK. Camelot’s re­tail di­rec­tor Dun­can Ma­lyon said: “We’re so glad they en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence.”
