The National Lottery has revealed the top 5 lucky professions, based on the numbers of millionaires created, are builders/construction (331), followed by drivers/transport (193), administrators (190), manufacturers (176) and then retail/shop assistants (146).
Former bus driver and National Lottery millionaire Peter Lavery, who parked a whopping £10,248,233 in his bank account on May 18, 1996, celebrated the good news for the second placed driving profession with a 20-strong group of women and children from the Belvoir Women’s Autism Spectrum Disorder Support Group at the lottery-funded, Ulster Folk and Transport Museum.
The group enjoyed transport onboard a Titanic Tours bus, a company that is owned by Peter Lavery, as well as a tour of the museum and lunch.
And in a bid to spread the luck, big-hearted Peter presented adults from Belvoir Women’s Autism Spectrum Disorder Support Group with a ticket for this Friday’s EuroMillions draw.
Peter said: “It was great being back on a bus again with all of the kids to celebrate the top 5 lucky professions.
“It was especially poignant for me visiting the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum as the very bus I used to drive before my big win is on permanent display there – so I made sure I got onboard for a trip down memory lane.”
