For a couple in Dalkeith, Edinburgh The Co-operative’s new strapline ‘Here For You For Life’ certainly rings true. But what has this supermarket’s marketing got to do with EuroMillions? Well The Co-operative supermarket in Danderhall is where husband and wife Gwynedd and Lesley bought their winning EuroMillions lottery ticket.
And the memory of their win will be with them for the rest of their lives, that’s when they finally absorb the great news. Gwynedd said: “I still don’t think it has sunk in yet and probably won’t until I see the money in our bank account. That will be a good day!”
It will also have a positive impact on the couple’s children’s lives, according to Gwynedd: “I want to set them up for life and ensure they have the money to enjoy their lives. Then, maybe a holiday for Lesley and myself. Life won’t change for us, it will just be better and easier than before.”
So far things have remained the same for this lucky couple who matched five numbers and one Lucky Star in the lottery results from Tuesday 2nd April’s draw. These were: 12, 17, 25, 29, 41 and Lucky Stars 1 and 4.
They haven’t blown their EuroMillions winnings of £361,988 on a big party either, in fact Gwynedd has only treated himself to a beer so far: “We haven’t celebrated yet, not even a glass of champagne. I did treat myself to a bottle of San Miguel.”
And Gwynedd intends to continue working full-time despite his lottery windfall. He is head chef at the Stable Bar & Restaurant in Dalkeith, where he has worked for the last 20 years. That’s dedication for you!
It would also seem that The Co-operative chain is lucky for Midlothian residents in general. Last year another couple, Graham Muir and Darren Morgan, also from the area, bought their winning National Lottery ticket from a Co-op too.
