Warrington Workers are a Winning Combination

A lotto syndicate from Warrington has finally claimed the £1,758,997 UK National Lottery prize they won on a ticket bought on November 30 last year.

The syndicate of six women was formed 20 years ago while the group was working together at Salsteam (now Norbert Dentressangle) on Birchwood Lane.

The ticket was purchased by Julie Philips, who placed it in her purse and forgot all about it until Monday of this week when she fished it out from among all her other tickets and till receipts and finally had it checked.

"It was only because I was in Warrington shopping and I walked past the kiosk where I normally buy our tickets that I decided to check," she admitted.
