EuroMillions operator Camelot has announced each of the UK ticket-holders won £1 million in the UK Millionaire Maker draw. Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, confirmed the news.
The National Lottery Thunderball winning numbers were: 2, 9, 10, 23, 36.
The Thunderball was 9.
Last month, one lucky Briton is believed to have won £111million.
However, nobody has yet claimed the huge jackpot prize.
Speaking after the draw on June 5, Mr Carter confirmed a UK ticket holder had won the jackpot.
Nationwide is one of the most familiar names on the high street, with the building society helping millions of people. It offers a range of savings products, including its ever-popular FlexDirect account, for Britons to benefit from. But savers with the provider could also benefit from a new monthly prize draw.
Every month, it will give away one prize of £100,000, alongside two prizes of £25,000.
There will be five prizes of £10,000 offered, with a final 8,000 prizes of £100 up for grabs.
Prizes in the Nationwide draw are selected on the second Tuesday of each month.
Then individuals can expect to hear from Nationwide in due course if they have won a prize.
“The launch of our Member Prize Draw is another example to show why it’s worthwhile being a member of Nationwide Building Society. It is about giving even more back to our members on top of the benefits we already offer.
“We believe it’s important that lots of members can benefit from the Member Prize Draw, which is why we are giving more than 8,000 members the chance to share in a prize pot of £1million each month.
“And what’s more, members don’t need to do anything to take part – as long as they have at least one of our mortgages, savings accounts or current accounts then they are automatically entered.”
There is, however, an option to opt-out which is to be contained on Nationwide’s website for those who do not wish to take part.
Although the pandemic has changed the business landscape with many more firms struggling as recovery begins, demand for property-related services has boomed. Fantastic Services, which covers cleaning, gardening, handyman, pest control and removals, has expanded into 20 new areas in the past year.
The company’s grant initiative plans to meet the initial expenses for starting a home services business. Prime clients are those who have lost their job, the self-employed or those experiencing business struggles due to coronavirus.
Anton Skarlatov, the co-founder and CEO of Fantastic Services, explained: “The grant covers most of the expenses for starting a working franchise business with Fantastic Services.”
Rune Sovndahl, the co-founder and board chairman, added: “Since the start of the pandemic, we have looked for ways to give back to the community, offering free services to NHS and frontline workers. With the new grant programme, we provide a viable alternative to employment through franchising and help anyone restart their career or business in a high-demand sector.”
The Fantastic Services grant programme is suitable for tradespeople, technicians with experience in the services sector and people who are looking to change industries and will bring customer service skills to the table.
Franchisees can work on-site along with their team or manage several local ones in London and other areas across the UK. It’s geared for local service providers or self-employed tradespeople who offer one or a selection of services.
HQ’s emphasis is on generating sales leads leaving franchisees to deliver the service. The company says it has invested £20m in bespoke technology platforms to streamline the booking process and work allocation.
Nationwide Building Society has launched a monthly prize draw today in which “every single” Nationwide member, defined as someone aged 18 or over and with at least one Nationwide mortgage, savings or current account, will be automatically entered into the Member Prize Draw each month. This launch follows on from the Building Society’s savings-focused prize draws offered over the last year.
Nationwide detailed more than 5,000 prizes have already been given out, totalling more than £4.3million.
These draws have proven to be very popular with its members and as such, this new offering will be launched in September.
Nationwide have committed to running Member Prize Draws for a 12-month period. However, Nationwide confirmed “listening to members’ views and opinions” remains important and as such, it will continue to listen to member feedback on the draws going forward.
The Building Society broke down how the draw works and how prizes will be paid out: “There will be 8,008 prizes to be won every month, with one lucky member having the chance to win £100,000 each time, as the Society aims to once again give back as much value as it can to members, particularly at this time.
Nationwide explained everyone will have an equal chance of winning a prize as each of the Society’s eligible members will get one entry per month.
All members meeting the entry criteria as of the last working day of each month will be automatically entered into the following month’s prize draw; however, members will be able to opt out if they wish by visiting the company’s website.
The draws themselves will take place on the second Tuesday of every month with the first prize draw taking place on September 14.
According to Nationwide’s data, there are around 14.2 million members eligible for the first Member Prize Draw, which would mean the odds of winning a prize are around one in 1,750.
As a result, Nationwide will be giving something back to communities across Northern Ireland with a fund of more than £300,000 set up in September to be shared amongst local charities.
Louise Prior, Nationwide’s Director of Membership Propositions, commented on the launch of the prize draw.
She said: “Our members are used to sharing in the benefits of mutuality through better service and with preferential rates, such as those offered on our Member Exclusive Fixed Rate ISA and Mutual Reward Bond. The launch of our Member Prize Draw is another example to show why it’s worthwhile being a member of Nationwide Building Society. It is about giving even more back to our members on top of the benefits we already offer.
“We believe it’s important that lots of members can benefit from the Member Prize Draw, which is why we are giving more than 8,000 members the chance to share in a prize pot of £1million each month. And what’s more, members don’t need to do anything to take part – as long as they have at least one of our mortgages, savings accounts or current accounts then they are automatically entered.
“We do understand though that there may be some members who do not wish to take part in our Member Prize Draw, which is why there will be an opt out page on our website and, by having the first prize draw in September, we are giving members plenty of time and opportunity to do so.”
A moving film showing Jack Charlton’s struggle with dementia is on course to raise £1million for charity.
The 1966 World Cup winner’s son John said the £851,515 made so far after the screening of Finding Jack Charlton has been donated to the Alzheimer’s Society. And his family has vowed to continue their support for the cause, and cancer research.
The documentary captured the Leeds football legend in the final months of his life.
John, of Ponteland, Newcastle, said: “Everyone who saw the film has said how moved they were by it. There were grown men with a tear in their eye.
“I have had fans from many of his former clubs get in touch.”
The 63-year-old revealed the £851,515 had been donated in Ireland – more than €1million.
In one clip from last week’s BBC show, Jack’s wife of 62 years Pat says to her husband: “They think a lot of you, don’t they, in Ireland?” Clearly confused, he replies: “I have no idea.”
Pat, who met the player when he was a teenager at Elland Road, said later: “It’s a shame because he had some good memories.”
Jack was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2019 and died on July 10 last year, aged 85.
