BURNLEY SYNDICATE SPLIT £1M EUROMILLIONS WIN
It’s been a while since we last reported on a syndicate bringing home the EuroMillions bacon, so to speak. In fact the last was a 16-strong member syndicate of travel agents from Kuoni Destination Management GTA in London. They split a £53,860.40 win on EuroMillions in August, and each took home just over £3,300. Before that, there was a syndicate of 9 in Poole, who split a 70k win on the National Lottery. Our latest story features a syndicate of lottery winners straight out of the book of good karma. That is to say these lucky lotto players do a very important day job – looking after the elderly and infirm at Willowbank Nursing Home in Pasturegate, Burnley.
The recently formed syndicate comprises of 34 nursing home staff including nurses, care staff, domestic staff and the manager, Diane Ireland, who said of the win: “I am so chuffed for everyone, they really are a lovely group. The timing couldn’t have been better with Christmas coming up, and it means we can give our families a really good Christmas now. We have some very loyal and hard-working staff, so I’m just so pleased. It’s brilliant.” Diane Ireland and the other 33 syndicate members each received £29,411 from their £1m EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle lottery win. Of course you don’t have to be part of a syndicate to win EuroMillions, but you do need to pick up a ticket to be in with a chance. You can play every Tuesday and Friday if the idea takes your fancy, and fingers crossed you’ll strike it lucky.
Will it be an instant million win in the raffle or better still the entire lottery jackpot? Now it’s even easier to play EuroMillions online at Lottery24.com.
