A retired nurse who won a fortune on People's Postcode Lottery has told of her romantic plan for spending her winnings.
Thrilled Joycelyn Gage, 75, scooped a £30,000 share of £150,000 when her postcode TN11 0RT, in Hadlow, Kent, was picked as a jackpot winner.
Joycelyn, who helped chronic pain patients before retiring, discovered how much she’d won during a video call with People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt.
And she was quick to explain her romantic plan for a very special occasion she's set to share with husband Stafford next year.
Joycelyn explained: “Oh I’ll be going to the Caribbean, to a little island called Montserrat which is where I was born and I’ll be visiting family and friends.
“It’s our 50th wedding anniversary next year and we got married there, so it will be a great opportunity to go back and celebrate our golden wedding anniversary in style.”
The grandmother of four also plans to have a big family celebration when it is safe to do so.
Joycelyn added: “I’ll take my three children and grandchildren out for a meal. We’re a very close family and FaceTime every day. I can’t wait to tell my children – I don’t think they’ll believe me!
“Other than my holiday and taking the family for a meal, I’ll need to think about how I’ll spend it. But I’m sure I’ll be put it to good use.
“It’s a tremendous boost to my bank account that I never envisaged, so I’m very happy and excited about it!”
