Two lottery winners will both receive an incredible £10,000 a month for a whole year

Two lottery winners will both receive an incredible £10,000 a month for a whole year.

Golf enthusiast Malcolm Garden, 54, bought his ticket online and has invested in renovation work on his house.

Dad-of-four Robert Brownlie, 43, bought his in a shop and even took it on holiday to Tenerife until it was validated.

Malcolm, a senior manager in clinical data management, was shocked when he woke up to an email notifying him of three wins.

And the third meant he would receive £10,000 into his bank account every month for the next year.

He found out he won the cash on September 26.

Malcolm said: “When I opened the National Lottery app I saw three messages, one with a £20 win, another was £25, which was good news, but I couldn’t find the third one.

“It was then that I realised I had won the £10,000 a month for a year prize with my Lucky Dip.”

After the news had started to sink in, Malcolm, from Lanark, South Lanarkshire, phoned his close childhood friend who assumed it was a ‘trick’ and didn’t believe him at first.

Eventually, after realising it was genuine the friends organised a celebratory dinner, ordering the finest champagne and lobster at a local Italian restaurant to mark the occasion.

For the majority of Malcolm’s career he has lived in California where he worked for 25 years before returning to Lanark in March 2020.

Since returning he has recently bought a new house and is looking to do some renovation work.

Malcolm said, “I bought a new house a few weeks before the win so the money will go towards some practical things like new windows and plumbing costs.

“However, I’m also looking to arrange a trip to Portugal with some friends and turn it into a golfing holiday.

“Only thing is I need my golf clubs from America first – they didn’t make it back with me when I moved back to Scotland.”

Dad-of-four Robert Brownlie, who works as a storeman, decided to buy his Set For Life Lucky Dip ticket while he was at a wedding in England.

It wasn’t until he returned to Scotland that he checked his National Lottery ticket at the local shop.

He said, “While I was at the shop buying a bottle of wine for my wife Kelly, I decided to get some of my tickets checked and one said I needed to call up to check the prize.

“After I found out I had won and, importantly, what I’d won, I rushed home to tell my wife and kids.

“From this point my winning ticket didn’t leave my side.

“It was always in my wallet and even came on a trip to Tenerife and back until it was officially validated.

“There was no way I was going to let myself misplace it.”

Robert explained that his family have already planned how his winnings will be spent, with his sons hoping for some financial help towards their cars.

The family are also planning to go on a relaxing holiday to Mexico next summer.

He added, “We need to get some new things for the house, mainly thanks to our husky who’s just over two-years-old.

“She’s still enjoying causing mischief and has chewed away at our sofa and table – so they will be replaced.”
