A mum of three, 55, found out recently that she won £1 million on the EuroMillions lottery just minutes after being told she had beaten breast cancer. Plus, it’s the family's THIRD lotto win!
The day started off with Lynne opening a message about her scan results. What could have been bad news ended up informing her that her results came back clear!
Before she could even tell her husband, who rushed home from work, he told her exciting news of his own, that they had just won £1 million on the EuroMillions.
The lucky couple hugged each other with utter joy informing each other of their incredible news.
Lynne was so relieved about everything that she went for a two-hour soak in the bath to let the genuine life-changing events that just took place sink in.
Speaking to lottery officials about when she heard about the lottery win, Lynne said: "I can't tell you what I said, it's too rude, but I was in total shock.
"I was shaking and totally lost for words which never happens.
David Price said that he bought two EuroMillions lottery tickets while out buying a pint of milk from his local corner shop Bal’s Best-One Convenience Store in New Tredegar.
He said, “I went home to tell Lynne but she had some big news of her own.
“The letter saying she had the all-clear is worth more than a million to me.”
There’s a lotto luck in this family
It’s not the first time that this particular family have won big of the lottery.
In March, a relative by the name of Ade Goodchild won £71m on EuroMillions.
Another family member who won big on the lottery is David’s sister Judith who won back in the 90s.
David told lottery officials that his colleagues at British Airways had nicknamed him “Lucky Dai,” before his EuroMillions lottery win based on the fact that he comes from such a lucky lotto family.
"It’s pretty amazing to have three big winners in one family."
He said, “It was always a bit of a joke, but now it’s really come true. I still can’t quite believe it. We’ve been doing the lottery since it started. You put your money on but you don’t really expect to win a million.”
David said that he’s been saving up for some time for a once-in-a-lifetime trip in May to climb to Everest base camp on a three-week expedition. Now that they have become instant millionaires, thanks to playing the EuroMillions, he can afford to pay for the trip in one go.
The couple, who have three children aged 32, 26 and 24 and an 11-year-old grandson Corey, are also planning a trip to China, which has always been their dream.
They both plan to carry on working while they work out what to do with their jackpot winnings.
