THERE was jackpot joy for two Loons Lottery participants last week.
A pot of £3,000 was up for grabs, and Kathleen McDonald and Paul Devine both matched all six numbers to claim £1,500 each. Both winners called into the Toy Castle to receive their cheques from Forfar Athletic director Dennis Fenton.
Kathleen actually learned about her win when she was holidaying in the Orkneys, receiving a call from her brother Colin Smith, who not only assists in “Lottery Headquarters” each Monday night, but was also the agent who supplied the winning ticket.
Paul actually learned about his win from Dennis, who popped into the Burns Bar with the good news.
“I am sure that Bruce Edwards, who sold the ticket on behalf of the Canmore Bowling Club, can expect a pint or two from Paul,” added Dennis, who is always keen to talk to other groups who may be interested in fund-raising through the Loons Lottery.”
All the current organisations who sell tickets for their club see the Lottery as a steady source of income throughout the year.
