COUPLE WHO LOST SON TO COVID WIN POSTCODE LOTTERY – TWICE IN TWO WEEKS

A couple who lost their son to Covid this year have won two lottery prizes in two weeks – and plan to use the cash for a memorial.

Susan Slater and her husband, from Canvey Island, Essex, scooped more than £30,000 in two People’s Postcode Lottery draws.

The couple’s were unable to give their son Steve, who they were unable to give a proper send off because of coronavirus restrictions.

Alongside four of their neighbours, Susan and her husband scooped a prize of £1,000 each with People’s Postcode Lottery on July 15.

Just two weeks later, lightning struck twice for the couple when SS8 0EA won again, this time netting the neighbours £30,000 per ticket.

Susan, 74,  told Essex Live.: “When I got the phone call for this, I’d told quite a few people that I’d won £1,000 and I thought ‘this is a wind-up, someone is winding me up!’ Nowhere in my imagination did I think I was going to be lucky enough to win £30,000.”
