Just weeks after celebrating Buxton FC’s Northern Premier League title win, Andy Cunningham, a volunteer programme and raffle ticket seller at the club, has now won £4,350 on the MegaBucks lottery programme. Andy has subscribed to the lottery scheme since it started but hasn’t landed any of the weekly prizes until now.

“Smashing news”, he said. “My sons Adam and Gary are regular supporters at the Tarmac Silverlands and Gary, like me, is part of the MegaBucks fundraising scheme. We’ve missed out until now, but they say everything comes to those who wait.”

Retired postman and Buxton resident Andy says he’ll be spreading the prize money around his family.
