Merry Christmas Margaret!
The winner’s name is Margaret Hitchcock and she comes from Abbeywood in London, England. Margaret won a £250,000 top prize with the National lottery after she entered the Christmas Advent Calendar 2015 Scratch card game and won.
Margaret is 56-years-old and told lottery officials that she was on her way to her job. She works as a customer assistant for a 10-hour shift but decided to stop by at “Townsend News” in Woolwich. It was there that she “started to feel a bit Christmassy” and bought herself the National Lottery Advent Calendar scratch card.
It happens quite often that most wins that happen to lottery winners have happened as a result of impulse purchases, or buying tickets on a whim. Hey, when inspiration strikes, you have to act on it! She admits that she wasn’t even paying that much attention to the scratch card while she was scratching it off. She only really slowed down and started focusing hard when she was on the final box. When she was done with it, it showed a pair of reindeer and a £250,000 prize. She couldn’t believe her eyes. Her heart skipped a few beats and she swore that she could almost hear sleigh bells ringing.
Because she couldn’t believe her eyes, she even took a picture for the scratch card and sent it to her husband for him to have a look at too. She and her husband have bene married for 19 years. Ron, 45, checked the photo with pleasure to see if they had indeed won it big with the National Lotto. He confirmed the win, as did the newsagent, and they instructed her to call Camelot to notify the company about her win.
Margaret was in total shock. She called Ron and asked him to fetch her and take her home from work because she was overwhelmed and was crying “tears of joy” and was therefore “useless at work.” The lucky National Lotto winner has a staggering nine children and 17 grandchildren. She promised to have a “cracking Christmas” without any financial worries.
Margaret also has plans of buying her husband his dream car, a BMW. She chuckled that “this might be one Christmas present that doesn’t get wrapped.”
The married couple also wants to go on a luxury cruise together and move out of their rented home into their very own bought flat. “To have my own home was always a pipe dream and now it’s a reality – that has to be the most awesome Christmas present ever,” exclaimed Margaret with joy in her eyes.
