Lottery win for 'unlucky' Wandsworth mum
A stay-at-home mother-of-two, one of whose children is suffering from autism, was left speechless when she received a £20,000 cheque from a postcode lottery.
Barbara Gloor, 35, of Headington Road, Wandsworth, was revealed as a winner in last week’s Saturday Street Prize.
She said: "I could do the sensible thing and pay off debt but I will probably splash out on a holiday, treat the kids or buy a new car. The kids will really enjoy a holiday."
Ms Gloor said she was not a very lucky person, but seeing an advert on TV for People’s Postcode Lottery Millions Draw made her hope for a win.
The Lottery’s ambassador and rugby legend, Scott Quinnell, paid a surprise visit to her Wandsworth home and presented her with the cheque.
She said: "I wasn’t expecting it at all and was left absolutely speechless. I’m definitely going to carry on playing now that I’ve won."
