Janette Robertson has worked in Hampton’s newsagents for eighteen years and was planning to retire later this year. A totally unexpected win of £1 million in the July 26 EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle has caused her to reconsider her planned retirement; she is moving it forward and considers her windfall as the perfect retirement present.
She had bought her winning ticket from her work, and checked the numbers through a winner’s list printed by her boss. In disbelief at first, she asked her boss to read the numbers aloud twice, then had him do a further check on the machine. Her win began to sink in after that.
Her husband Dennis also decided to retire upon learning of her win, and they are now planning a family holiday, and they have already bought a new car.
