A lucky break for Richard as he wins £100K
Yorkshire man Richard Frost is delighted after landing the £100,000 Saturday jackpot on The Health Lottery. The win came after Richard matched all 5 balls on the 7th December Health Lottery draw.
Richard, who is 26, suffered from a number of health issues in his childhood, including a brain tumour the size of a tangerine, which had to be removed when he was just four years old.
Speaking about his upturn in fortunes Richard said:
“I couldn’t believe it. I was completely shell shocked. I came downstairs and said to my Mum: ‘I think I’ve won the jackpot!’
It is just amazing to finally have some good luck for a change.”
Richard is the sub-postmaster at the joint tea room and post office managed by his Mother Dini, in Hunmanby, where they live. After the Post Office started to sell Health Lottery tickets, Richard decided to give it a go as he liked the fact The Health Lottery helps raise money for good causes. It proved to be an inspired decision as after only his second attempt he landed the £100,000 Saturday jackpot.
Richard’s Mother, Dini Frost speaking about her son’s win said:
“This is amazing. It is something that happens to other people. Not to us. He has done so well and works hard. He deserves it.”
