I won £30k & brand new BMW on Christmas scratchcard

A GRATEFUL gran has kicked off the new year in the best way possible, winning £30,000 and a brand new BMW on a scratch card.

Hanna Valarie Dewar, from Tain, in the Scottish Highlands, won big on the Cars & Cash National Lottery scratchcard, after she nearly threw the winning ticket away.

Mrs “Val” Dewar said she had decided to treat herself to the scratch card after a trip to the dentist, on December 22, and was left in disbelief after she realised she won.

The 79-year-old said that she nearly threw the winning ticket away before she realised she had won the top cash prize and a brand new BMW X2, the Daily Record reported.

She said: “I had been at the dentist that day and decided to buy myself a couple of Scratchcards to cheer myself up. I remember it because I was chatting to the lady behind the counter at Morrisons who, funnily enough, was also called Val.

“Being a few days before Christmas the shop was very busy so I decided to wait until I got home to scratch them.

“I live in a farmhouse with a big open fire and normally when I have scratched the cards, and if I haven’t won anything, I just throw them into the fire.

“Strangely, that day the fire wasn’t lit and boy am I glad about that!”
