AS DELIVERIES go, it is one that has turned her world upside down!

Hampshire pensioner Christine Boyce has found herself quids in after winning thousands of pounds in the lottery.

And now she’s set to spend her small fortune on a trip of a lifetime to Australia to visit her son.

The 71-year-old was stunned when she opened the door to be confronted by a bumper cheque for £25,000 after striking it lucky in the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Christine had only been playing the lottery for two months before she scooped the Saturday Street Prize where each winning ticket is worth £25,000.

Christine, retired, of Knowland Drive in Milford-on-Sea, said she signed up because she was impressed that large amounts of money from the organisation goes to charities.

She said: “I only started playing in December, when I saw it advertised it mentioned a large amount goes to charity.

"I keep looking at this card that says you’ve won People’s Postcode Lottery and I can’t believe it.

“We haven’t been on holiday in a very long time so we are going to visit a friend in Greece and then maybe go to see my son in Australia.

“It was so funny when People’s Postcode Lottery arrived this morning.

"The lady next door is getting some work done – and the workman saw me waiving my £25,000 cheque.

"They asked me how I did it so I told them to go and play People’s Postcode Lottery!”

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador and former X Factor contestant Danyl Johnson, presented the cheque to Christine on her doorstep and said: “It was brilliant to bring a smile to Christine’s face.

“She was so surprised and to imagine that she only started playing in December is simply incredible.

"It is always such an honour to meet the winning players who are helping to raise millions of pounds for so many great causes.”

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £104.2 million for good causes across Great Britain and internationally as part of the charity lottery.
