Penzance Lottery Winners
5:45pm 8th October 2013
A west Cornwall dad who won half a million pounds as part of a lottery syndicate tells Pirate FM it has not sunk in yet.
Sixteen workers from the Co-Op in Penzance are taking home a share of the Thunderball jackpot.
The Market Jew Street store manager Stephen Babcock says it is surreal: "Absolutely fantastic feeling for myself and the team that was in it. At the moment I'm not sure (what I'll do with it) I've got a little girl who's four years old so I'll look to put something away for her, maybe a holiday in the New Year and obviously some new cars I think for me and my wife.
One shop worker won ... on his last day at work!
Daniel Simons switched from the Co-op in Penzance to Hayle just after their numbers came up: "Well when I got here everyone was already in it and they asked me so I thought 'Yeh, a pound a week and a chance to win, can't really say no. We didn't really believe it until we came to work and we saw him and the ticket. But yeh, it's all good now. Everything's paid off and Disneyland for the kids for Christmas."
