An Englefield Green grandmother has won the jackpot of almost £20,000 in Surrey Air Ambulance’s charity lottery after picking her lucky numbers based on family birthdays.
The winner, who does not want to be named, scooped the top prize in the Superdraw with numbers 8, 18, 21 and 30 in last Wednesday’s draw.
She now plans to buy a new car and take a two-week holiday to her dream destination in
She said: “Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. We won about £250 on the National Lottery nine years ago but nothing as big as this.
“My £8-a-month subscription has come in really handy and I had to ask the lady at the Air Ambulance how much I’d won, three times. I couldn’t believe I’d won £19,790.”
Surrey Air Ambulance’s regular lottery costs just £1 a week with 12 weekly winners of amounts ranging from £25 to £1,000.
For an extra £1 a week, players can join the Superdraw which has a maximum jackpot of £25,000 – a life-changing amount.
The charity has also launched scratchcards which cost £1 each and are available to purchase from the charity’s website www.kssairambulance.org.uk. Prizes range from £1 to £1,000 but players must be aged over 16.
