Retired bus driver Hugh Lundy has always dreamed of traveling the famous route 66 in America in style. But after years of winning just the occasional tenner here and there, he never really expected the lottery to provide the means to make his dream travel come true. But after winning £800,000 on the People’s Postcode Lottery, he now plans to make the dream trip with his wife Isobel.
The couple gave up a day of bowling with friends to come to a ceremony where Hugh received two checks for £400,000 because he had purchased two winning tickets.
Aside from their trip to America, the couple from Kilsyth, Lanarkshire, plan to help family and give to charity.
