Leeds grandmother celebrates lottery win

A grandmother from Leeds is celebrating today after scooping almost £100,000 on The National Lottery.

Susan and her husband Terry celebrate the win

Susan Bradley, who celebrates her 60th birthday this year, says a new car and surprises for her family are top of the shopping list.

I am absolutely over-joyed. This win means my husband and I will never have to worry about money ever again. My family is my everything and I will be ensuring they are all okay and well looked after.

– Susan Bradley

Susan, who is married to Terry, 72, is planning to splash out on a new car – and treat her family of four children and four grandchildren.

Susan, who won with a lucky dip ticket, after matching the numbers: 21, 27, 31, 34, 40 and the bonus ball 22, said she bought her ticket after going to the local Nisa Supermarket in Thorpe Street, Leeds, to buy cigarettes.

Susan said it was late on Saturday that she decided to check her ticket.

I was checking on the television and I thought … this cannot be true – they are all of my numbers. I work with numbers all of the time but for some reason I just couldn’t focus and I just kept thinking I must have something wrong. I checked, checked again and then just shouted to Terry who was asleep in the chair.

He checked for me and then just shouted out … we are winners and there is just one winner of £99,000 and it is us! We just kept staring at the television and reading the numbers over and over again.

I had to pinch myself – I thought – was that all a dream? Is this really happening to me? It was only after we called Camelot that we realised winning the lottery was really happening to us.
