MEET SOME OF OUR WINNERS

Camelot winners

Craig Harrison and Debbie Piper

Craig Harrison and Debbie Piper Craig Harrison and his partner of 35 years, Debbie Piper, who are both pub managers from Lowestoft, have many plans for their family’s future after winning the £100,000-a-month-for-a-year top prize on The National Lottery’s ‘12 Pays of Christmas’ Scratchcard in December 2022 – but first on the list was looking forward to their first carefree Christmas in more than 20 years!

“We’ve been in the pub trade pretty much all our working lives, so we’re used to helping the people of Lowestoft celebrate Christmas – reserving our family celebrations for another day. But not this year! It’ll be strange to wake up on Christmas Day and, instead of rushing about opening up for our regulars so they celebrate the big day, we’ll be thinking about a relaxed Christmas lunch.”
Craig Harrison

Len and Hazel Parsons

Len, a grandad from Rochester who has been married to Hazel for 46 years, always believed he was going to win – even joking with family that, before he gave up work for good, he’d win on The National Lottery. And with his lucky Thunderball ticket, he did just that – scooping the £500,000 top prize in December 2022, with ensuing celebrations leading to a brief shortage of Bollinger in the local area!

Camelot winner

Celeste Coles

Celeste Coles, a retired teacher and mum-of-two from Birmingham, has been busy drawing up her bucket list after scooping £3.6 million in the EuroMillions draw in July 2022. This includes providing financial security for her two adult daughters, Rachel, who has Down’s syndrome, and Nicola.

“The biggest thing for me is knowing that I now have financial security and that my girls will have a more comfortable life – especially Rachel. We have been supported by some excellent charities that have had an enormous impact on our lives. Pure and Midland Mencap, in particular, have been a great support and do brilliant work – including giving Rachel the opportunity to work and integrate more fully with the community. I know that Midland Mencap has had National Lottery funding over the years too, which is amazing.”

‘The Apprentices’ syndicate

A group of friends from Merthyr Tydfil, who created their National Lottery syndicate while at college doing their apprenticeships, celebrated a £1 million windfall from the special EuroMillions European Millionaire Maker draw in February 2023. The syndicate, which includes Alex Gwynne, Dan Phillips and Kyle Bowen, started playing six years ago when a group in the year above them at Coleg y Cymoedd won £5,000 on The National Lottery. Their lecturer at the time joked that the lads should start their own syndicate which they promptly did, and they have been playing ever since.

Camelot winner celebrating

Robert Cameron

Dad-of-four Robert, from Glasgow, won £1 million after matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball on Lotto in July 2022 with a Lucky Dip that he initially forgot to buy. A new home and car will be on the list of purchases for Robert, as well as a family holiday.

“I’d just got settled in for the night when I remembered I hadn’t gone to the shop for the tickets. Then I got a call from my youngest son asking if I would go and pick him up. I decided, seeing as I was heading back out again anyway, I may as well nip into Asda and get the Lucky Dips. And I’m so glad I did!”

Maxine Lloyd and Wayne Tilbury

Maxine, an NHS worker, and her builder fiancé, Wayne, were toasting a double celebration in August 2022 after winning £1 million on The National Lottery, while Maxine also successfully completed treatment for breast cancer. The couple – from Kettering – won the top prize on the £30M Mega Cash Showdown Instant Win Game on The National Lottery app.
