An 89-year-old grandmother, who will be turning 90 in April, received an early birthday present after she was named as the winner of more than £10,000 in a charity lottery rollover.
Iris Lambert, from Romford, collected her winnings of £10,500 with daughter Pam Barlow from Saint Francis Hospice, Broxhill Road, Havering-atte-Bower, on Friday.
She said: “I’m still on cloud nine.
“When my daughter told me the good news I kept asking if it was true.
“It is more money than I’ve ever had and I didn’t really believe it until I had the cheque in my hands.
“I have been planning a dinner with my family to celebrate my birthday and now it will be a lot easier.”
For just £1 a play you have the chance of winning the weekly jackpot prize of £1,000. The rollover increases by £500 every week and will do so until the maximum £25,000.
