A group of 25 factory workers today pledged to finish an important order for their bosses, despite scooping a UK National Lottery jackpot of more than £14 million (US$26.3 million).
Each member of the winning syndicate at Gymphlex Sportswear manufacturers netted £577,858.76 (US$1,085,852) in Wednesdays draw.
But the group, who make up about a third of the workforce at the firm, were in bright and early the next day to work on an important overseas order.
Speaking as they celebrated at the factory in Horncastle, Lincolnshire, the machinists and other staff said they could not leave father and son company bosses George and James Greenlees in the lurch.
One winner, garment finisher Leslie Fountain, 57, said: I was in at 7.30 this morning as usual.
I was given this job when I had nothing and wouldnt leave Gymphlex in the lurch.
The money will still come in handy but Mr George has been a good boss and I wouldnt want to let him down.
Mr Fountain said he had worked at the firm for 22 years.
Purchasing manager Pam Emmerson, 50, said: It has been lovely to win as a team.
Its like a great big party and everyone at Gymphlex and even in Horncastle seems genuinely thrilled for us.
It will make a huge difference to everyone and its great to be able to share our excitement with each other.
The firms managing director, James Greenlees, said: It couldnt happen to a more hard-working and diligent group and we wish them all the best.
We expect a row of gleaming Rolls-Royces in the car park on Monday morning.
Syndicate organiser Elaine Waite, 46, said she learned about the win via Teletext on Wednesday night, but only told her fellow syndicate members yesterday.
Mrs Waite said: I couldnt quite believe my eyes.
I was absolutely astounded and I called my husband, Barry.
I was so excited I fell over and banged my head.
