A father from Cricklewood will be collecting an award on behalf of a health charity on national television this evening.
Ray Rowley will be accepting the National Lottery Award for the Best Project in the Health which has been awarded to The Ichthyosis Support Group (ISG) where he is the vice chair and a volunteer.
Mr Rowley’s daughter suffers from ichthyosis which is a potentially fatal condition affecting around one in 300,000 people.
The ISG received almost 5,000 public votes in this year’s National Lottery Awards, the annual search for the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded good causes.
Mr Rowley said: “On behalf of the Ichthyosis Support Group I’d like to pass on huge thanks to everyone who voted for us and to the National Lottery for supporting us.

Mr Rowley and his fellow trustees will be seen receiving the award on the National Lottery Stars 2013 programme on BBC 1 tonight at 10.30pm.
