A lucky winner

A 28 year old man from Bristol is celebrating this week as he has won £50,000 in the national lottery. However, he nearly missed his chance.

The man bought the ticket a few months ago but when he looked for it to check the numbers to see if he had won, he couldn’t find it. He searched everywhere and thought he must have lost it. Six months later he found the ticket in the back of his car and when he looked at the numbers, he couldn’t believe his eyes – it was a winning ticket. He was worried that he was too late to claim his prize, but luckily the lottery company confirmed that he was still within the permitted time period. He now plans to move to a new house and buy his wife a new car.
