Katie Dakin has spent most of her adult life working with children at an Ipswich school, and she won't let her big jackpot win change that.
She matched all five lucky numbers and the bonus number to win £1 million. The draw took place on March 13th, and her and her close family celebrated early into Mother's Day.
“It was a usual Saturday evening, relaxing and sat in front of the TV with a drink or two, but as I watched the draw results live on TV I immediately knew they were my numbers,” she said.
She had been playing her lucky number, her son's birth date, for years but this is the first time she's won any big prizes. “What an amazing turn of events – my son has, in some strange way, helped give me the most amazing Mother’s Day gift of all time!”
Katie and her husband say that they plan on using the winnings to buy a new house and take a family holiday when they are able to travel again. "After the time we've all been through we'd love to get away - maybe Center Parcs before a big trip to Disneyworld in Florida," Katie said.
