Tara Currie was quite literally speechless when her dad won £30,000 on People's Postcode Lottery after losing her voice.
The 40-year-old's father Robert won big when his ticket came up trumps in the popular draw.
But when the Zoom call came through from lottery ambassador Judie McCourt to break the exciting news, Tara couldn't say a word.
Mum Linda explained: "Tara has lost her voice at the moment but she has tears in her eyes! I’m absolutely speechless, things like this don’t happen to us."
And retired sales manager d ad Robert, 77, added: "We split the ticket with our daughter Tara so she has won too as we’ll split the winnings fifty-fifty. It’s a double whammy really!"
Dad Robert won £30,000 after his postcode KY11 2LE was announced as a winner with People’s Postcode Lottery. And one of his lucky neighbours also picked up £60,000 after winning with TWO tickets.
Robert said the win had come at a brilliant time for two huge reasons. He explained: "I’ve had a lot of issues health-wise recently and I’ve been feeling a bit down but this has just lifted my spirits and given my morale a real lift.
"And it’s our golden wedding anniversary in November so some of it will go towards a special holiday when we’re able to travel again, maybe to Vienna.
"We’ve got lots of planning to do and lots to look forward to now that we can afford it!"
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “It was my pleasure to deliver some good news to Robert, Linda and Tara. How lovely to get a golden envelope with a nice big cheque inside on the year of their golden wedding anniversary!"
