A chicken factory worker Elisio Ximenes, from East Timor who has been away from his family for five years won a lottery of £58,000 and is planning to take his family on a holiday in Bali.
Elisio Ximenes has now given up his job as a night shift worker at the Two Sisters Food plant in Scunthorpe and has plans to move back to his home town and set up his own restaurant business.
The 33-year-old reportedly selected five numbers in Betfred's 49's lotto that was based on his identity number at work, and luckily it all appear in the draw.
Well, following his win, Elisio went on to explain his life by far and how he feels to have won the lottery. In a conversation with The Grimsby Telegraph, he said,
I moved from East Timor five years ago and have not seen my wife Jovita and my boys who are 13 and seven, since then, When I rang her to tell her everything had changed for just £2.70 she, like me, just can't believe it - and said that God must be looking down kindly on our family. 'She is a good cook making traditional food and now we can set up in the restaurant business in my country; but first all the family will be going on a holiday to Bali which is a beautiful place I have always wanted to visit
Well, Ximenes is a Catholic and went to Mass every week. He sent almost £1,200 to his family back home.
Following the win, Ximenes has been celebrating and has also thrown a drinks party back at his home in Scunthorpe and will soon himself fly back home.
