I won life changing money on the lottery – there’s 3 things I can’t wait to splash out on

A mom who won the lottery with a life-changing amount has revealed three things she can’t wait to splurge on.

Nichola Galley, 43, pocketed almost £56,000 when the street from her home in Dukinfield, Greater Manchester, was selected in the Postal Code Lottery.

The mother-of-two raised money along with 16 of her neighbours.

She is now hoping to move into a suitable home for her disabled daughter Ava.

The 13-year-old was born with a rare genetic disorder – meaning she can’t talk, can only eat through a tube and can’t walk on her own.

Nichola has spent four years scouring Rightmove trying to find the perfect home for her family and says the money now makes things easier.

She told Manchester Evening News: “Ava’s condition is so rare that it has no name.

“Most pregnancies [of this condition] miscarriage or stillbirth and the doctors did not expect that she would still be with us at this age.

“We will use this money to move into a home that better suits Ava’s needs.

“I wanted to give Ava her own bedroom with a dressing table, just like every 13-year-old girl wants.

“This gave us a little hope and a little bit of happiness, it felt like it was within our reach. I felt a little bit more relieved.”

The supermarket cafe employee, who was now forced to give up a design career when Ava was born, said they needed a downstairs bedroom and bathroom for the baby.

Nichola also wants to take her son James to learn to drive and fly to Spain for the holidays.

She added: “I’m still in shock, I can’t believe we won that money.

“It’s going to be so helpful that it’s hard not to get emotional.”

Danyl Johnson and Matt Johnson, the People’s Postal Code lottery hosts, brought life-changing news to the street.

Matt said: “We had an exciting day in Dukinfield, sharing the love of Millionaire Street with an incredible 17 winners.

“It’s so special to see the neighbors win together.

“But the local charities in Dukinfield also have something to celebrate, thanks to People’s postcode lottery players.

“They’ve raised over £1.1 billion for charities and thousands of local good works.

“Neighbors win and charities win. It’s a win-win situation!”
