For a Cumbrian couple, the silver lining in the clouds came courtesy of the wife finally being cleared of cancer closely followed by a significant lottery win. Helen Garnett got the all-clear from her illness just a few months ago and now she and husband Derek are millionaires!
Helen discovered she had won big when she logged onto her account to check her ticket. She found an email from Camelot which advised her of the win, but in the excitement, she found it hard to count all the zeroes. She had to wake her husband up who soon realized they had won £1million in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw.
The shop assistant is excited to be able to live life to the fullest, thanks to her health and their newfound wealth. She says that doesn’t mean she will give up work anytime soon. She plans to continue working as a shop assistant at a homeware and gift store.
Now comes the good part. For starters, they are shopping for a grey Mercedes and a new home. She says that now they have a lot to look forward to.
