From a friend in London:
She said Steve and Gwen Poole, of Leeds, won nearly 2,000,000 pounds recently.
They (along with another winning ticket) matched the six numbers drawn out to share the UK Lotto jackpot, which came out as £3,927,854.
This means they take home just under £2m. Not too bad. Right?
The couple sent out their son Tom to buy their ticket and they didn’t even know they had won until the following day.
Then Tom sat them both down, put up the UK Lotto results and gave them the ticket. Steve Poole saw the amount under the numbers and was left feeling numb.
Both are planning to go part-time after this great win – Steve is a driving instructor and Gwen a dental nurse.
However Steve has decided to give up his second job of a recovery vehicle controller in which he started to do when the couple were struggling financially. They have a big family which includes four sons and three grandchildren so they are going to splash out and treat everyone to a superb Christmas.
