Richard Davies loves two things; hairdressing and playing the EuroMillions lottery. With the salon being extra busy and having back to back clients the whole day, Richard just made it on time to buy a EuroMillions lottery ticket for the June 1 draw minutes before the cut-off.
The lucky EuroMillions player is a hairdresser who has owned the Chop and Change salon since 2004 told lottery officials:
“I dashed out to the Co-Op round the corner and went back there to check my numbers the following Wednesday. I waited in quite a long queue and was told they were unable to pay out such a large amount.
“I rang my partner Faye straight away and we were both in shock but I had a day full of appointments in the salon. As soon as I had a spare moment, I rang Camelot and was calmly taken through the winning process – I had to cut the call short as my client’s colour was ready and needed to be washed off!”
Now that’s what you call dedication!
The couple did, however, despite living in Wales, decide to go to Camelot’s Winners’ Lounge in Watford, England to claim their prize.
It was Faye’s 36th birthday on June 12 and which is why they took the day off work and celebrated her birthday claiming the amazing £1m EuroMillions Lottery prize.
On the way there, however, their car broke down. Time was running out once again, with the offices about to close for the day. She quickly phoned the AA and bought membership out of their EuroMillions winnings and they eventually arrived in Watford with five minutes to spare.
“Faye rang and bought AA membership, and after hearing our story, they prioritised our call-out and we arrived at the Camelot offices with five minutes to spare!
With the funds now safely claimed, the hard-working couple is planning to take a well-deserved vacation. The first one in the ten years that they have been together.
“We can’t believe our luck at all. I’m planning on carrying on at my salon but it will be great to start planning how to treat ourselves. We can’t believe our luck, really, neither can any of my clients!”
