A man who runs a very small woodworking shop receives welcome relief from financial stress via an instant lottery ticket win. A Set For Life ticket Brendan O’Connell had purchased at Coleman’s Food Centre in Mount Pearl turned up a big winner. When he scratched the ticket at home, he discovered he had won the top prize of $1,000 a week for 25 years or $670,000 in a single payment.
O’Connell was overcome with emotion as he received his prize check. He plans to invest some of it in the two-man operation that is his woodworking business, and be careful with the rest. He says he may take a little more time off now.
