The UK Lotto results are always an exciting time for all online lotto players. For this particular group of UK Lotto winners, they managed to scoop up a huge wad of cash after matching five main numbers along with the Bonus Ball too. Read further to find out just who these lucky players were and how they managed to win as a strong team.
The group of winners are a syndicate team of bricklayers from South Tyneside in England. The lucky group won their UK Lottery prize on the 8th of July, 2015. They explained to lottery officials that this win has been a long time coming since they started playing together nearly 20 years ago.
A member of the syndicate, Graham Hartley, 45, said the following, “We always play the same numbers and have won a few quid here and there, but never anything this big before.” The UK Lotto prize total amounted to just over £69,000 which will be split equally between the seven colleagues who all work for the South Tyneside homes. Graham said that he initially got the wrong idea as to why his syndicate team member was calling him on Thursday morning. He initially thought he was calling him to notify him that he was taking that day off. Graham had no idea the news he had in store for him.
“When he said that we’d won the lottery, I thought he was just winding me up, you know,” explained Mr. Hartley, before adding: “we’re all just completely over the moon about this wonderful news. The syndicate team managed to get their industrious hands on a prize amount of £69,283. The team says that this amount will certainly make a difference to their lives, but that it won’t 'be a drastic change'", says Graham Hartley.
He added further that, “We haven’t won enough to quit our jobs, but we are still very grateful for the life-changing amount.” All the team members have not yet decided what they want to do with their UK Lottery winnings. Some of the ‘brickies’ have listed a holiday to Greece, to have kitchen renovations done in their houses, and also to buy a Gibson Les Paul guitar. “It’ll make life a little more comfortable, which means we get to enjoy a nice trip away or get to splash out on a bit of something that our loved ones will get excited about – things like that,” explained Graham.
There was another syndicate group from Lincolnshire who recently won a massive £1 million with the Euro Millions lottery. These winners were also thoroughly delighted that they were able to spend some money on things they’ve always wanted to spoil their loved ones with, and also on things that they’ve always wanted to do but just couldn’t afford.
The same goes for these Tyneside syndicate members who have struck it lucky with the UK Lottery. They all agree that their newfound wealth will finally give them some peace of mind to allow them to really live life to the fullest.
