The win came after Richard matched all five balls on the main 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 the upturn in his 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. 

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 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.”
