IT’S a special early Christmas gift for Whirlow man Nick Melody…courtesy of the St Luke’s Lottery!
For Nick picked up a massive £10,500 windfall from the lottery that supports Sheffield’s only hospice.
Nick specifically wanted to support a local charity and so started playing the St Luke’s lottery in 2016.
But he was staggered by the size of the win as be believed the top prize was £1,000 and had no idea that the rollover jackpot could get as high as £15,000 before it is drawn.
And now he is planning to use some of the unexpected cash to pay for a family trip to Australia.
It costs just £1 to join the lottery that has a guaranteed weekly prize of £1,000 as well as a £100 second prize and 100 £5 winners.
