Syndicate millionaires continue on camping holidays

A camping-mad couple have spoke of how a win on the lottery had little impact on their holiday traditions.

Sue and Norman Harris, from East Yorkshire, were part of a syndicate at a Tesco store which scooped an £18.2 million jackpot in 2005. The Harris' share was £1.4 million, which has changed many aspects of their life, except their traditional camping holidays.

Avid fans of the British countryside, the Harris' decided against jet-setting to far flung corners of the world but instead put their winnings toward a more upmarket trailer tent, settling on one with all the mod-cons.

"We went caravanning or camping for a holiday once a year," Sue told outandaboutlive.co.uk.

"We went all over but Skegness was a favourite. When we won, we bought a new trailer tent with electrics, cooker and a sink."

The announcement came following the news that a syndicate working on the buses scooped £38 million on the Euromillions. Following the announcement, the Tesco syndicate were offered the chance to explain how the money had changed their lives, with most seeing little change.

Sue explained to mirror.co.uk how the group still meets up once a month and "chat about everyday life, not money."

The Harris' are not the first couple to hit the headlines after buying a tent following a large lottery win. Earlier this year Matt Topham and Cassey Carrington won £45 million on the Euromillions but put the first of their cash towards a £39.99 tent to take to that summer's V Festival.
