An avid golfer has hit it big, not in the golf course but in the Euromillions Lottery. John Kingsman, a retired greengrocer and now an employee at Wholesales and Catering Supplies in Winchester managed to match five numbers drawn and one lucky star to win a £154,144.50 prize. But it was already two days after the draw when he decided to check his ticket to find himself suddenly much richer.
As Kingsman has no immediate family, his friends can expect meals out and a few games at the golf course. The winner has no plans to leave his present job, where he says his main task is to make tea. He plans to play more golf though, now that he can afford to. And he seems set on replacing his Ford Fiesta with a Range Rover.
