Dan Coleman from Porthcawl was a recent lucky winner of the £2,000 jackpot, after receiving his lottery ticket as a birthday gift from his mum.
Dan said: “It was my birthday a couple of weeks back and as my mum volunteers in the Tŷ Hafan shop in Porthcawl she thought it would be nice to get me a lottery ticket for my birthday. I’m still fairly new to it so I didn’t expect anything like this! I was in work, on a roof in Llantrisant, and the lady called me to say that I’d won £2,000! I just didn’t believe it.
“I was meant to be travelling around Asia last October but obviously the pandemic meant it had to be put on hold. This will help towards it. I’ll maybe save some to have a bit of fun with because we haven’t had a lot of chances to have fun the last couple of months.
“It’s great to play the lottery anyway with the money going to the charity, you hardly notice payment leaving your account, it goes to charity, and you might be a winner!
