Lottery winners’ foreign holiday goal
A foreign holiday is the top priority of four Portsmouth-based lottery winners’ who plan to take out travel money from their £1.5 million lottery win.
Lewis Fox, 22, his father Tom Fox, 45, Sid Veness, 51, and Mark Bush, 41, are Tenerife-bound after their ticket was one of four to share Saturday’s £6.2 million Lotto jackpot.
The four engineers, who all work for CCN Communications, have previously gone on holiday together.
But Mr Bush said: “This will most definitely be a holiday that we won’t ever forget.”
The syndicate’s winning numbers were 14, 19, 22, 25, 38, 48 and the bonus ball of 8.
The lucky number 22 partly helped to secure their financial futures.
The younger Mr Fox, who chose the winning line, picked 22 as one of his numbers for good reasons. It is the date of his mother’s birthday, his late grandmother’s lucky figure and also his age.
The quartet began the syndicate at the beginning of this year, and have become the second Portsmouth syndicate to win within a few weeks.
Last month, three workmates from a Portsmouth sailing firm, Terry Hunt, Andy Wallace and Alison Gruar, scooped £1 million in the Euromillions Millionaire Raffle draw.
