The winner of Lifeline’s annual jackpot draw has decided to donate half of his winnings back to Notts County.
Howard Miller won the £10,000 prize drawn by owner and chairman Alan Hardy at the Swindon game on Saturday 28 October and has confirmed he will be giving £5,000 back to the club to put towards a good cause.
Mr Miller says this is because he feels it’s important fans do what they can to aid the club.
“I was shocked and delighted to win and I’d love the club to use the money for something that will benefit them,” he explained.
“I’ve been a member of Lifeline since the 1980s and have always felt it is important to make contributions to the club - and you stand a chance of winning a handsome sum too.
“The commitment isn’t massive and I am thousands of pounds better off thanks to it!”
The 57-year-old moved to Horsham in West Sussex 25 years ago and still travels to games as often as time allows.
He said: “I last came to Meadow Lane for the Yeovil fixture in August and I was in the crowd for the win at Macclesfield at the start of October.
“I make it to away games more often than home ones now, but my son Joe has grown up supporting Notts despite living hundreds of miles away and he gets to plenty of matches.
“I’ll spend the rest of the money I won enjoying my retirement and helping my kids out as they start their careers in London.”
The club would like to thank Howard for his very kind gesture.
