A retired couple are planning a bucket list of experiences thanks to a National Lottery win that sees them bank £10,000 every month for a year.
Angela and Steve Hathorn, from Orpington, are still in shock after they matched all five main numbers in the Set For Life draw on January 23.
Angela, 63, used to work with children with special educational needs at schools and nurseries and 68-year-old Steve was a design draughtsman.
They are now planning a series of adventures including a cruise, luxury trips to London and more visits to historical and heritage sites across the UK.
Angela explained how she was initially worried there was a problem with her ticket when she asked for it to be checked at her local shop.
She said: “Every Sunday I buy my Set For Life tickets for the coming week and normally get both checked at the end of the week in the shop, I never check the numbers online.
“Unusually, I went into the Co-Op on Carlton Parade on the Tuesday and asked the lady to check the numbers for the Monday night draw.
“She had a puzzled look on her face as she stared at The National Lottery terminal and then she asked her colleague to take a look.
“I was starting to get nervous, worried there was a problem and not helped by a large queue behind me, before the shop assistant said they couldn’t pay out over £100, and I should go call the National Lottery line to claim my prize.
“I didn’t even ask how much, I just went back to my car to drive home.”
