On the shopping list: dream home and Gillian wants a new car

ADRIAN and Gillian plan to start the search for their dream home, complete with a kitchen with all the modern gadgets.

Gillian is also after a new car, an Audi Q7, while Adrian has always wanted to visit the Canadian Rockies by train. The children meanwhile would love to visit Disney World.

The couple plan to take time to consider how else they will use the money to help others. Gillian explains: “Children’s charities are close to our hearts so we will be exploring how we can use this money to help those charities but it is too soon to say exactly what.”

Adrian and Gillian zoom into second place in The National Lottery Rich List, just behind Colin and Chris Weir from Largs who remain at the top of the list with their jackpot of £161,653,000 won in July 2011. This latest win continues the UK’s amazing run of luck on EuroMillions; the couple are the seventh big jackpot winners so far this year.

Local councillor Brian Boyd extended his congratulatuions to the couple.

He told the Guide & Gazette: “I was thrilled to hear of Gillian and her husband’s win.

“I knew Gillian when we were in our 20s as she was dating one of my friends at the time but lost touch when she moved away. She is a lovely girl and I can’t think of many more who would deserve such a lucky break.

“I still meet her brother while walking the dogs in the morning, I would imagine the lives of the entire family will have changed for ever and I wish them all the very best.”
