Simon celebrates £5,000 lottery win

A father is planning a holiday of a lifetime to America’s West Coast after winning almost £5,000 in Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance’s charity lottery.

McLaren F1 technician Simon Ellison, from Guildford, won the jackpot in the Superdraw just a week after celebrating his 50th birthday.

He picked his lucky numbers 7,16, 25 and 27 from family birthdays and his favourite racing driver and they came up in last Wednesday’s midweek draw.

Simon won a total of £4,784 after joining the fundraising lottery four years ago when a canvasser called at his home.

He said: “I’ve seen the Air Ambulance in action in the snow two years ago at a sledging accident near Guildford. It’s a very worthy and important cause.”

Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance’s Regular Lottery costs just £1 a week with 12 weekly winners of amounts ranging from £25 to £1,000. There were also three winners from Woking

For an extra £1 a week, players can join the Superdraw which has a maximum jackpot of £25,000 – a life-changing amount.
