The message that flashed on Joe’s screen

Joe, who had been down the beach for the day with his wife Karen, was in for a shock, “Suddenly ‘Congratulations, you’ve won £100,000’ flashed up on the screen and another message quickly followed which asked me to call Camelot. Karen and I just looked at each other in stunned silence, unable to move. I rang the number immediately and it was confirmed that we had scooped the top prize!”

The couple plan to invest in their house, “Our home enjoys stunning views over the valley, so we’re going to spruce up the decking area just in time for the summer. It’s my favourite place in the world to sit on a warm balmy evening!”
