Twelve bus drivers aged between 34 and 64 have had a lottery syndicate for the past two years without a win and were on the brink of giving it up, when they won £38m on the EuroMillions.
The Stagecoach employees are over the moon with the win and it could not have come at a better time with talk of their shifts being cut.
One of the drivers said he would be giving up his job, he claimed: “…don’t get me wrong, I love my job, but I can’t go driving a bus around when I’ve got an Aston Martin”.
Stagecoach confirmed that services were running as normal despite the lack of drivers. The local manager at the Stagecoach depot in Corby said he has the huge task of sorting out shifts and finding replacement drivers, but was happy for the 12 that won and did not mind the extra work on this occasion.
