Havering ‘90 Joggers ran from Raphael Park to Romford Town centre on Monday, March 19 in the hope to jog the memory of the missing European Millionaire Maker winner from the EuroMillions draw on Friday, February 23.

The winning ticket was bought in Havering.

With only two days left before the first key 30 day deadline passes, the Havering 90’ Joggers donned their trainers and ran with the winning code JLVW 63060 emblazoned on their tops.

Mark Dalby, lead runner said: “We’re quite familiar with donning fancy dress to raise money for local charities but this is the first time we’re run with a giant £1million cheque.

“Here’s hoping our efforts will help to find that lucky winner, who knows maybe they will decide to join us in celebration.

“All our runners, beginner or elite, get an amazing buzz from reaching their goals, I bet discovering you’ve become a National Lottery millionaire is almost as good.”

If no one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline on August 22, then the prize money and all of the interest it has generated will go to help National Lottery funded projects across the UK.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery said: “The first 30 days deadline is really important in the life of this unclaimed prize because someone who really thinks they are the winner, but doesn’t have the ticket for whatever reason, can still potentially make a claim.

“After March 25, we can only pay out if the winner presents their EuroMillions ticket.

“Here’s hoping that the Havering 90 ‘memory joggers’ will prompt everyone to search out and check their tickets and remind friends and family to do the same.”

If you have any queries or believe that you have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180 day deadline, call the National Lottery line on 0333 234 5050 or email help@national-lottery.co.uk.
