Dad wins £80,000 from £10 Betfred stake and plans dream trip – Liverpool Echo

A Wirral roofer is planning a dream trip after winning a cool £80,000 on a £10 bet.

Self-employed Steven hughes is set for a once-in-a-lifetime holiday travelling the iconic Route 66 highway in America after the big win.

The 54-year-old from Pensby said: “It will be travelling on that famous road probably next year or a posh cruise – but the road trip is favourite.”

The dad-of-three, who has eight grandchildren, added: “My wife Gail and I fancied a luxury holiday and at first she started checking out Caribbean cruises.

“Then we started thinking about an unforgettable Route 66 road trip going east to west across America from Chicago to Los Angeles. We won’t be doing both, that is for sure! Normally we go to Benidorm or Tenerife.

“I’m a biker but we’ll hire a car or camper van or something.

“It will be for just the two of us and should be great.

“We will also pay some of the mortgage off from the £80,000 and our children, who are all grown up, will get some of my winning too.

“We have not really celebrated yet with restricted hours at the pub but we’ll be having a big family meal.”
