£10,000 win for former rugby player Allan!

He’s more used to winning line-outs – but now he’s got a winning line on The Health Lottery!  We were delighted when former Nuneaton Rugby Club player Allan Taylor scooped £10,000 in our New Year’s Day draw.  What a way to kick off 2020!

Father-of-three Allan, 50, is now the heads groundsman for Atherstone.  Ever loyal to the game, he’ll be using his winnings to see a Six Nations match.  The family had also previously had no holiday on the cards for 2020.  Therefore, Allan also plans to take his wife and three daughters on a family holiday to Dublin. 

 “You never think it is going to be you,” said Allan.  “I couldn’t believe it was true!  I asked my wife and girls to all check my numbers.  We wanted to make sure it was the real deal before we could properly celebrate!  They were ecstatic about the news.  It has allowed us to get that long weekend in Dublin that we have always wanted.  I really fancy going on the Guinness factory tour and learning a little more about my favourite stout.”

Allan plays lottery online, and in fact his £10,000 Health Lottery win comes from playing via direct debit.  He tells us he plays because: "The Health Lottery supports so many great causes.  We are a family that has received some great support over the years from local causes.  It is wonderful that we can give back to these grassroots projects simply by buying a Health Lottery ticket.”

Martin Ellice, Joint Managing Director at The Health Lottery, said: “We offer Allan and his family our warmest congratulations on their win.  It is great that they will be able to get a well-deserved break.  We’re also delighted that Allan can enjoy his passion for rugby in person at the Six Nations.  Wishing the Taylors a wonderful time!”

All tickets purchased on the Health Lottery website in February will raise funds for good causes in the West Midlands.  In March, we will be raising funds for the North East & Cumbria.
