A ladies’ work syndicate from Grantham are celebrating after scooping a £1 million EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize.
The seven-strong Lucky Ladies Syndicate, an all-lady group who work at Thera Trust Charity for adults with learning disabilities, are all £142,857.14 richer thanks to their life-changing win on Friday, April 14.
Syndicate Leader Lynn McKinnon, 62 said: “It was early Saturday morning and I was checking my emails when I saw one from the lottery saying they had news about my ticket.
“My initial thought was that it was just a small win. I didn’t have my glasses on and just saw what I thought was a load of noughts.
“I thought it was one of those pop-up ads so hastily found my glasses, I couldn’t believe what I saw… my heart just started pounding.”
Lynn called her daughter, Donna and told her she thought the syndicate had won.
“Donna called the National Lottery line on the email and spoke to the lady for me. I then chatted with her and she said someone would call me back, but from the information I had told her, we had won one million pounds!” Lynn added.
The syndicate all work at Thera Trust, based in Grantham, who work hard to supports adults with learning disabilities.
Syndicate Leader Lynn is a Senior Human Resources Assistant with the rest of the syndicate working across different departments, and all live in and around Grantham.
The syndicate want to spend their winnings on various things from holidays, to new cars and houses.
Lynn said: “It has been so nice to share this win with friends and we’ve loved celebrating together.
“The win means so much to each of us in different ways – I can’t tell you how amazing it has been.”
