A lottery syndicate composed of furniture makers thirteen in number may have proven that 13 is not so unlucky after all. The workers from I and JL Brown Antiques just bagged a jackpot worth £224225 from the Euromillions Lottery. The group from Hereford have only been playing the lottery as a syndicate for the past eighteen months.
The group had purchased their ticket containing the winning numbers 4, 30, 31, 38 and 42 from The Copper Kettle newsagents on Aylestone Hill in Hereford.
A few members have already been celebrating by going to the Hereford United games. Other ideas for their share of the bounty include dishwashers, helping finance a daughter’s wedding, a greenhouse, a car and a television
