Mum of four wins a life changing £1 million • 27.07.16
A mum from Middleton’s dreams have came true as a lottery win has allowed her to have the trip of a lifetime to Australia to visit her daughter – something she thought would never be possible.
Susan Home plays The National Lottery online and was woken up one morning by her phone’s email tone. She took the noise for junk mail but when she went to look at her phone she soon realised it was from The National Lottery. The email told her she had won two Lucky Dip tickets and a further message asked her to log on to her account.
“I just saw zeros and I thought I have won £1,000. I ran into my son Lee’s bedroom and asked him to check the email I was just so blurry eyed and he said…mum you’re a millionaire – you have won £1 million! There are six zeros”
“It was only 6am but I was literally dancing around the house singing I am a millionaire, I am a millionaire – it is still all sinking in – I still cannot believe it!”
Susan, who worked as a warehouse operative, decided to leave her job and is planning on visiting her eldest daughter, Joanna, in Australia.
She said, “Joanna went travelling last November and I’ve not seen her since. I always hoped I would be able to visit her so I’ve literally been working 7 days a week and as much overtime as possible in hope that one day I would be able to save enough money to go.”
“Now, thanks to The National Lottery I have – this win really couldn’t have come at a better time. When I broke the news to Joanna she couldn’t believe it. We can’t wait to be reunited.”
As well as the holiday to visit her daughter, Susan is planning on buying a new house for herself and to pay off her current mortgage so her eldest son, Anthony, can have his own home.
The win has allowed her to help her son onto the property ladder and she said, “It’s every mother’s dream to be able to provide for her children and this win has done just that!”
