A story about friends is always uplifting. But what is more uplifting is to hear of friends who win at something they do together, so friends winning the lottery together is sure to bring a lot of smiles. It does not even matter if they took more than a month to find out.
When a number which won a million pounds at a draw in June lay unclaimed, Camelot decided to air an appeal. Syndicate leader Lita Powney decided to check and even asked her son-in-law’s help to verify, then immediately called Camelot. The friends, who all work at the Hilton Brook House residential care home, near Bridgnorth became £1 million richer in an instant.
Houses, new cars, vacations and other good things are being considered by the seven-strong group of friends. Their win also serves to stress the need for all players to check their tickets immediately.
