One lucky lady from Aberdare returned home from a family holiday to discover she had won £12,000 in the Crackerjackpot lottery.
Christine Davies, of Unity Street, has been an avid supporter of Tŷ Hafan for many years and was delighted to receive a phone call telling her she was the winner of the charity’s rollover prize.
She said: “I couldn’t quite believe it at first. I had arrived back from a holiday with my sister and her family when my daughter called to tell me that I’d won. When I found out the amount I was really shocked, really surprised but really happy!”
When asked what she would spend her winnings on, the mother-of-one said: “We do like our holidays so I’m sure that will be on the agenda and I’ll think we’ll treat ourselves to a new TV and maybe make some home improvements.”
“I have been playing the lottery for several years now,” said Christine. “I like supporting a local charity that helps children. Not only can you win a large sum of money but the money raised goes to such a good cause as well.”
