10:00am Friday 17th January 2014 in News
A HAMPSHIRE pensioner is celebrating a new year windfall that could see her and her husband jet off for a muchneeded holiday in 2014.
The 81-year-old, who has been playing the competition for many years, hopes to spend the money on her family, which includes nine grandchildren, as well as using it to pay for a trip away with her husband of 50 years, David.
Mrs Phillips, a retired office worker, said: “I have won £15 a few times before but never anything like this.
“It’s lovely – a bit of money that we can use to treat ourselves and help the family out.”
Don’t forget to pick up your copy of tomorrow’s Daily Echo tomorrow to be in with a chance to win the jackpot which now stands at £38,000.
