Padiham man scoops Telegraph jackpot
2:00pm Thursday 5th December 2013 in News
A DELIGHTED great-grandad from Padiham has scooped £500 on the Lancashire Telegraph Bingo.
Colin Priest, 53, who has two great grandchildren and 14 grandchildren, said that he wanted to treat his whole family after claiming the jackpot.
The father-of-three, who lives Langdale Road, said: “I’m absolutely over the moon, and it’s amazing to win so much in one go.
“I was putting up my Christmas decorations when I got the phone call telling me that I had won, and I had to put my wife on because I was so shocked.
“It’s a fantastic feeling and I can’t wait to treat my family with it over Christmas.
“It’s a wonderful early Christmas present.
“I have won the odd £30 or so before on the Lottery or at bingo, but never anything like this before so I’m delighted.
“I might set some aside to buy a ticket for a Burnley match in the future but this has set Christmas up to be one to remember.”
