It was only when her husband checked the ticket that they realized it was actually a whopping £21 million!!
Mr. Stickley was still at work when finding out the news and didn’t know what to do: “I called and told her to put it somewhere safe so we could deal with it later. I suggested maybe she could go shopping or do something to take her mind off it – she was all over the place and I thought it may distract her until I finished work and we could decide what to do next. The rest is history,”
The lucky couple have the usual things planned; holidays, new cars and a new house. But the thing that is top of their list is to look after their elderly parents: “We are normal people. We do not want dramatic change. We are just going to try and comprehend what has happened. We intend to celebrate in style – we will do something we aren’t ever going to forget as this is an unbelievable time for us both,” said Mr. Stickley.
