Teenage mother, Rebecca Tierney, is all set for happy new year after winning £100,000 on a (UK) National Lottery scratchcard, bought from Hooton News in Church Street, Golborne. She rarely buys scratchcards, and had only intended to buy a can of coke, but when she noticed the cards on the counter she decided to try her luck.
When she arrived home and began scratching the card Rebecca initially thought she had won £2, then realized she'd got the top prize of £100,000. She is now planning to take driving lessons and purchase her dream car—a Mini. "I have never considered myself lucky," said Rebecca. "This just shows that anyone can win."
