A 78-year-old Teesside grandmother is enjoying belated celebrations after discovering she had won a £390,592 share of the jackpot in the Lotto draw on Saturday 25 March 2006.
Anne Kelly from Normanby was `shocked but thrilled` after learning of her win at her local shop when she had gone along simply to place her regular numbers for the following week`s draw. Now her first priority is to take her Teesside-based family on a holiday to Ireland to meet up with some of her relatives in Dublin, who she has not seen in more than 20 years. Next on the list is to have the exterior of the house painted.
Anne explained: "I couldn`t believe it - I usually check my numbers on the night itself but we had been celebrating my grandson`s 10th birthday so I missed the draw. It was such an amazing feeling when the shop assistant told me I`d matched all six numbers that I immediately rang my daughter Mary to share the good news. I`m going to spend some of my winnings on a holiday and my house, but after that I`ll be sharing my good fortune with the family."
