MARGARET WINS LUCKY NUMBERS JACKPOT
Local resident, Margaret Cheyne had an unexpected windfall last week when her numbers came up on the Montrose Football Lucky Numbers, netting her a tidy £3,100
Run jointly by Montrose FC, Montrose Roselea JFC and Merpro AFC, the local community scheme, which gives participants 3 chances to win on each £1 ticket, has paid out more than £110,000 since it began back in 2008
Margaret, a member of the scheme since it started, was delighted by the win saying, “Having dealt with the restrictions over recent months, which included my birthday, I am looking forward to being able to enjoy life a bit more again so this unexpected surprise has come at the perfect time.”
Scheme Promoter Stuart Robertson added, “In the last 12 years we have raised over £140,000 to support local football and it is big wins like Margaret’s that keeps the scheme so attractive. I would like to thank all those who regularly buy our tickets.”
