You might remember the story of our own Manc delivery driver, David Swatman, who won £100k on a scratchcard about this time last year.

The national Lotto scratchcard win meant the world to David, 40, who scooped the top prize on the Super Cash Bonus scratchcard last February and has used his newfound fortune to move out of his shared accommodation as well as a dream holiday to Vegas.

David, who still works as a delivery driver, has used some of his winnings to follow his favourite football team, Liverpool FC although he didn’t manage to get tickets to see them in the Champions League final in Kiev. David originally joked that he could go to Ukraine to watch Liverpool should they make it.

He said, “I’ve followed Liverpool all my life but because of my job, I often have to work weekends and can’t see them play as often as I would like to.”

Speaking at the time, he explained how his win was down to his grandfather. David said,

“I have a picture of my grandad next to the TV and sometimes I still like to have conversations with him as if he is still with us. One day I was watching a documentary on lottery winners and I remember vividly telling him to look after me and bless me with a win of my own.

“Lo and behold, I’m sitting here £100,000 richer and it’s all down to him. He’s definitely looking down on me, wherever he is.”
