Scottish Roofer wins EuroMillions


Thirty-Two year old John Edmond of Edinburg on Friday July 3, 2015 won $1m from Euro Millions.

To celebrate, John and his wife, Amanda, aged 31 will have a two week holiday in the Maldives, Bali or Thailand along with their children. 

Edmond decided not to give up his 9 to 5 job as a roofer at Midlothian Roofing Services and will continue working after his vacation. He will therefore need to apply for vacation leave from his boss. 

With their claim validated they are ready for changes in life. In an interview at the Herald, John Edmond remarked, “For us this is definitely life changing, we didn’t sleep the night we found out we had won.” “Vacationing in a place like the Maldives was only a distant dream but now along with our two daughters it will be the trip of a lifetime, we will be going soon.“we will move to a bigger house so our daughters can have separate rooms and upgrade our current vehicle."

Amanda stopped working as a customer adviser but John who has been working since he was 16 years old says he will continue to work, it is what he has know all his life.

He is a weekly regular lottery player.
