Father son duo at High Wycombe

Ken and Kalem might just be the feel-good story you didn’t know you needed to hear.

The father and son team head up High Wycombe News and Lotteries, their passion for Lotterywest starting out by simply playing one of the hallmark games of the business. 

“Dad used to get us a Slikpik 50 every Saturday night,” Kalem said. 

“He used to help me check the numbers when they were drawn on TV and we’ve always loved the fact a ticket can potentially change someone's life forever, while also supporting our community.”

The notion of working with family might be scary for some, but the past two years as workmates has only made this father and son duo closer inside and outside of work.

I consider Dad my best friend, we share a lot of common interests and enjoy being outdoors,” Kalem said. 

“We also have amazing staff who always strive to make things easier for us.”

The father and son team must be doing something right, their store already creating two Division One winners in 2020.

We were having dinner together when Lotterywest rang us to tell us the amazing news,” he said.

“This was a very special moment that we look back on fondly and can't wait to experience receiving that phone call again.”
