Seaside man’s £300Thousand ‘Weston-super-Win’

Dan Fisher has been working hard during the pandemic at a company that makes furniture for NHS Nightingale field hospitals. Now the 45-year-old from Weston-super-Mare is also assembling a list of exciting ideas after winning £300,000 on a National Lottery Scratchcard.

Dan picked up his winning Scratchcard on a regular visit to his local Tesco. He unpacked his shopping at home before remembering to check the card.

He said, “I put everything away, put my sweats back on and couldn’t believe what I was seeing! I rang my brother Tobias before I even rang Camelot to check my win. He was telling me to get off the phone and get onto them!

“I was a bit like Gollum while keeping the Scratchcard safe – I kept it in my work bag, which is never far away from me.”

Dan hopes to put some of the money towards buying his first home and plans to take Tobias and his young family on a dream holiday to Florida as soon as it is safe to do so.

He said, “It’s 10 years since I’ve been on holiday and it will be great to treat my 2 nephews and nieces to the holiday of a lifetime. I’ve been window shopping for houses but am in no real rush, so I will wait until everything settles.”

Dan is extremely proud to be working for an NHS supplier during the pandemic. He said, “It’s incredible, really. I enjoy the job and to be employed by a key NHS supplier feels like we’re supporting key workers in their work, which is very rewarding.”
