Doncaster has had a number of lucky Lottery winners over the years.

Mark and Sara Plowright celebrated with bubbly and a dip in their new hot tub after striking it lucky in 2021.

Mark, 48 and a concierge at Doncaster Sheffield Airport and wife Sara, 43, a training coordinator, won the £1m top prize on The National Lottery’s 50X scratchcard which Mark bought when picking up some essential supplies after work.

Sheffield is deemed one of the luckiest cities for lottery wins.

Ray and Barbara Wragg won £7.6million in 2000 and gave away more than £5m of it to friends, family and charities.

Sheffield hairdresser Deana Sampson swapped her city council home for a luxury conversion in Baslow after scooping £5.4m. She had just £3.60 in her bank accounts when she matched her numbers in 1996.
