On July 2, John and Alison Doherty won the £14.6m top prize in a lottery draw in Scotland and John was quick to get back to working again as a plumber just because he did not want to let his loyal customers down and he would be bored sitting at home.

He Said The Following:

“I really enjoy my work – I’ve been doing it a long time. I want to stay grounded. I’ve got a lot of loyal customers and I don’t want to let them down. My customers are older people and they’ve treated me just the same after the win which is what I want. I’m doing stuff that was arranged before all this happened. I can’t imagine sitting in the family home all day. You’d be bored not working. So I’m just carrying on. I’m just back off two holidays so I definitely don’t think I should be sitting on a beach. I will treat myself – but once it’s all settled down a bit”
