Diana Thompson, who won last week’s £10,000 Spire Lotto jackpot took a break from her live radio show to learn she had won the five-figure windfall!
Diana was on air on Elastic FM when Spire Lotto co-ordinator Angie tried to contact her to inform her of her win.
Taking up the story, Diana said: “I saw the call but I couldn’t take it because we were live on air.
“Al, my co-presenter, told me that the number was the football club, so I went into another room and rang back. I was absolutely flabbergasted when I was told I’d won.
“I’d only looked at my card the day before and thought, ‘I wonder why I’ve never won a tenner…’ I put the card back in my purse and the next day I won the big one!”
Diana, who has only been taking part in Spire Lotto for a year, revealed her plans for spending the money, saying: “I’ve got a lot of home improvements that need doing and I’m going to get my garden sorted out. I’ll hopefully also put a bit towards a new car.”
It costs from just £1 per week to take part in Spire Lotto (multiple tickets can be purchased to increase your chances of winning) and there are many prizes to be won each week.
