Syn­di­cate’s Bray ticket hits jack­pot

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE €250,000 Na­tional Lot­tery prize that was won with a ticket bought in Bray has been claimed by a syn­di­cate based in Dun Laoghaire.

The Mace Su­per­mar­ket on the Ve­vay Road sold the €250,000 lot­tery ticket to ' The Fin­gers Crossed Lucky 14' syn­di­cate from the BD Med­i­cal Phar­ma­care Com­pany in Dun Laoghaire, who then won the prize in the Easter Mil­lion­aire Raf­fle draw held on Easter Mon­day. They col­lected their win­nings at lot­tery head­quar­ters in Dublin last week.

The group from BD Med­i­cal all work as ma­chine oper­a­tors, as­sem­bling pen nee­dles for di­a­bet­ics.

Stephen McKenna, the syn­di­cate or­gan­iser who pur­chased the ticket, said; ' This is su­per news - the best start ever to a work­ing week. We couldn't be­lieve it when we dis­cov­ered we'd won big on Mil­lion­aire Raf­fle as it's our very first time to play it as a group. Usu­ally, we play EuroMil­lions or Lotto.'

The age range of the group – all men – is from their mid-thirteis up to their six­ties. The syn­di­cate started in Jan­uary 2014 and the big­gest win it's had so far has been €50. It was their first time to play Mil­lion­aire Raf­fle.

Spend­ing plans in­clude hol­i­days, new cars and help­ing to pay mort­gages. ‘No­body’s do­ing any­thing too mad!’ Stephen re­marked.
