IT COULD BE YOU: Town crier Tony Appleton with Cllr Rob Benham
HAVERING was given a wake-up call on Monday by The National Lottery town crier as the search continues for the EuroMillions millionaire raffle ticket-holder yet to claim their £1million prize.
With the deadline to claim the prize just days away, The National Lottery town crier visited Romford as part of a tour of Havering where the ticket was bought for the draw on Friday July 26 2013.
Joining town crier Tony Appleton in his quest was Havering councillor, Robert Benham, who is keen to find the lucky ticket-holder and help ensure that the Romford postcode (RM) maintains its position as the luckiest national lottery postcode in the country.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Despite best efforts, the £1million prize for the ticket bought in the London Borough of Havering remains unclaimed. We know that the area is already very lucky, it even sports a National Lottery ceremonial flag declaring Romford as ‘The UK’s Luckiest Postcode’. Let’s hope that the luck holds and the ticket-holder comes forward in these final days.”
The National Lottery town crier and Havering’s Councillor Benham received their own taste of the millionaire lifestyle as they were chauffeured about the region in a convertible Maserati Gran Cabrio courtesy of The National Lottery.
With starting prices from £97,000, the winner of the unclaimed prize might choose to pick one up as a city run-about.
The ticket was bought just three days after the National Lottery town crier, Tony Appleton, announced the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new son, and heir to the throne, Prince George.
Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
