Butcher scoops top prize on Bonus Multiplier Scratchcard
A butcher and avid Wolves fan from Wolverhampton is celebrating after winning the top £100,000 prize on a National Lottery Bonus Multiplier Scratchcard and it's all because his daughter needed some change.
Wolves fan Robert Pardoe had spent the day at work as normal before taking his youngest daughter, Laura, to see some of her friends. Robert, a butcher at Morrisons in Telford, didn't have any change for Laura who wanted £8 as spending money. He only had a tenner on him so he popped into Sainsbury's Extra in Compton, Wolverhampton, and bought a £2 Bonus Multiplier Scratchcard and gave the rest to his daughter. Robert said: "
I then went home and after an hour or so remembered the Scratchcard, so I found it in my coat pocket and checked it. I looked, then looked again and couldn't believe my eyes. My brother David then checked it again for me and then I can't really remember the rest of the evening - it was a blur of excitement! I then called The National Lottery the next day to claim my prize."
Robert has been working at Morrisons in Telford for nearly three years and has been a butcher all his life. His passion for his local football club stretches back over many years. He has two daughters Laura and Emma and a son John.
Robert has kept the winning Scratchcard in his wallet but now wants to treat his family with his winnings. He said: "
I've got an old Vauxhall Astra but it has been a good car so I'll upgrade to an Insignia. I'm going to look after the children and I think we'll have a holiday as a family, and then I don't know what to do with the rest, but there's no rush."
