Lottery milestone celebrated by winners
Lucky winners with a combined fortune of more than £110 million have posed for a Vanity Fairstyle photo shoot to mark the National Lottery’s 25th anniversary.
The 25 individuals from each year of the lottery’s existence are some of the biggest winners from more than 5,500 millionaires created since the first draw on November 19 1994.
The line-up includes 84-year-old Brian Caswell, from Bolton, who won £24.9m in 2009 and Bev Middleton, 40, from
Bradford, who received £14.5m in 2017.
Since the first draw 25 years ago, the National Lottery said it has paid out more than £71 billion in prizes and raised £40m to support thousands of projects and charities across the UK.
The winners, aged between 26 and 84, were photographed by Sven Arnstein.
