King's Lynn syndicate £4,206,341A syndicate of four men who all work for M&B Servicing Road Maintenance Company in King's Lynn, has paved the way to their future by scooping a fantastic £4,206,341 win on the Lotto draw held on Wednesday 14th March, only weeks after finding out they are being made redundant.
Syndicate leader David Brock said that the syndicate had gone through a roller coaster of emotions over the last few days. "We were obviously very sad about losing our jobs through redundancy, especially as the company is well respected by the guys and we enjoy working together. But suddenly our future has completely changed with the win and we are all on a high."
It was David's colleague, Trevor Kimber, who first discovered the win. Trevor explained: "I was reading the Daily Mirror at work and I thought the numbers looked familiar. The truth is that I've got it wrong many times before so I didn't believe it. I got the ticket out of the van and said to David, 'you'd better check this and get a copy of the winning numbers'.
"David went into the local supermarket and when he came out said, 'well it's right, we've got every one'. It was a fantastic moment and we're very, very happy of course."
The syndicate is already starting to make plans for the future. Trevor wants to buy a new VW car and take it easy until he decides what to do with his winnings.
David has plans to buy his own house, a new car and take time out to travel to New Zealand and Australia to visit relatives. He commented: "This win changes everything. It's the opportunity of a lifetime and I really am going to enjoy it."
