A Brighton teacher is celebrating a £25,000 windfall after winning the jackpot in Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance’s charity lottery.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, signed up to the fundraising Superdraw just two months ago when a canvasser called at her home.
And she was stunned when her £8-a-month subscription paid off and lucky numbers 19, 29, 31 and 36 came up in Wednesday’s draw.
She said: “It’s amazing because I’ve never won anything and there’s so much we can do with that amount of money. We can pay off some credit cards and spend some of it on house improvements.
“We see the Air Ambulance landing in the park around the corner from our house but I never knew it wasn’t funded by the Government. As soon as I found out it was a charity, I decided to support it.”
Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance’s Regular Lottery costs just £1 per week and there are 12 winners drawn each week with prizes 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. To join the lottery go to www.kssairambulance.org.uk/Lottery/join_lottery or call 01622 833833.
