EuroMillions winners to expand music shop
14 August 2012, 12:58
The winners of this week's Euromillions jackpot of £148m plan to put some money into their music shop business.
Winning a EuroMillions jackpot of £148m would normally prompt you to buy a house, go on holiday, or maybe take of care of some debts. But for a Suffolk couple who have just won the rollover fortune, the plan is quite different.
Adrian Bayford owns and runs the Suffolk Music Centre, a popular second-hand instrument and record shop, in Haverhill. He's worked there for 17 years and wants to use some of the lottery winnings to expand the business. Bayford's wife, Gillian, plans to give up her job in healthcare to spend more time with her family.
The win has catapulted the Bayford's into the list of 1,000 richest people in Britain. The jackpot isn't quite as much as the current record of £161m, scooped last year by a couple from Ayrshire.
So, if you live in the Haverhill area and are in the market for a second-hand instrument, make sure you haggle for a good price. Chances are the shopkeeper's not short of a penny or two.
