Sarah Cockings, a recent UK Lottery winner, isn't worried about student loans anymore.
While working on her social degree at University, Sarah stopped in to see her sister, who worked at a local post office. With her sister's encouragement, Sarah bought a UK lottery ticket; she didn't play the UK lottery often, only buying tickets occasionally. To her amazement, when the lottery results were announced, she went from expecting a tenner... then more... and more as each lottery number added up. Immediately she called over her father, who confirmed it: Sarah had just won the UK Lottery!
Sarah knows that this "craziest, most amazing thing" of her lottery winnings has changed her life forever. She's kept her UK lottery money in the family: the first thing she did with her winnings was to buy her parents' house. After ensuring her parents' financial security, she made sure her UK lottery money went to her sisters as well. Each of them got new wardrobes, courtesy of Sarah's UK lottery winnings. Her sisters admit there are some practical benefits to being related to a winner of the UK lottery - why raid her wardrobe when her lottery winnings can simply buy them all new clothes?
That doesn't mean Sarah hasn't treated herself with her UK lottery money, either. She immediately purchased her first car - a Mini Cooper she calls 'Bunny' - and followed that with a Range Rover. When picking up the Range Rover, she overheard another couple remark that it was the car they would buy if they ever won the UK lottery. Sarah has, and is delighted to live the UK lottery winner's dream, car and all! Although she says she isn't the best at parking the massive Rover, with her UK lottery money, she has nothing to fear from parking tickets.
Although she loves being pampered, Sarah is pragmatic about her future and is determined to not let winning the UK lottery disrupt her life plans. Unlike other lottery winners who may be content to retire, Sarah knows that this is just the start of her career. She is looking forward to finishing her schooling and possibly entering into a career of midwifery. Thanks to her UK lottery winnings, she now has the flexibility to pursue other options, using the financial boost of the lottery to do what she truly loves. She has also given generously to charity with her UK lottery money, showing how dedicated she is to helping others.
With a new sense of financial security, hope, and happiness brought about by her UK lottery win, Sarah says there is absolutely no downside to being a lottery winner. After seeing how she's helped her family, herself and others with her UK lottery winnings, we're inclined to agree!
