Sheffield couriers celebrate special EuroMillions delivery
A syndicate of couriers are celebrating an extra special delivery after scooping a £228,180.10 win when their ticket matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star in the EuroMillions draw on Friday 16th March.
The 19-strong syndicate who call themselves ‘Infonote’ – named after the short delivery notes they leave for customers when they are not at home – will each bank £12,009. Top of the shopping list for the winners are home improvements and caravans.
Syndicate leader, Craig Davison, 50, who always buys the tickets online said he could not believe it when he received an email about his win.
“I just thought I was in a dream, or seeing things. I kept touching my computer screen thinking this just cannot be right,” Craig said.
“Everyone always dreams of winning the lottery and we obviously all hoped that our dreams would come true but I don’t think any of us really believed it would happen to us. It is something which always happens to other people.”
The syndicate had only started up two weeks before they won, and each member chose a line of numbers for the Friday draw. The winning line was: 4, 17, 24, 27, 31 and the Lucky Star 10.
“We actually only started two weeks ago after hearing about a big rollover,” Craig explained.
“We decided you have got to be in it to win it so we went for it. And we are so glad we did.”
