When long time partners Sally Cloke and Richard Thursby found a penny while Valentine’s day shopping at a thrift shop, they immediately thought they were in for some good luck. They were not wrong.
The couple later had dinner of fish and chips, and Sally had her hair cut. Afterwards it was Sally’s turn to buy something for her partner, four beers this time, so they headed to the Woodthorpe Road Stores in Ashford where Richard a Lotto ticket; it was that ticket which won them £1 million.
With their new riches, they want to buy their own house, some new carpenter tools for Richard, and perhaps a new car. And Sally has always said she will marry Richard if they ever won the lottery, so there may be more to this story soon.
