Lottery win will help couple’s disabled daughter

A couple from the small UK seaside town of Withernsea are celebrating after landing a Lottery win. And the lucky winners emotionally revealed how it will make their lives much easier in looking after their disabled eldest daughter.

Paul and Debbie Lawton, who have lived in the Yorkshire town their whole lives, have a 29 year old daughter who suffers with cerebral palsy. They have cared for her all her life, and have two other daughters.

Having won the £7 million jackpot, the Lawtons can now afford to move into a new bungalow that will make it easier to care for Tracey.

Debbie said: “Sometimes we have struggled with money but sometimes we have been all right. Our current home has already been adapted for Tracey, but we are hopefully going to look for a new bungalow to live in, which is better adapted for her needs. She will be able to get a better bedroom and a better bathroom. Otherwise, things will stay the same. I wouldn’t want to move too far from Withernsea.”

She continued: “I still haven’t got my head around it really and I still think it’s not real. Sometimes you are just sitting there with a big smile on your face. I don’t feel any different. Maybe it’s just not sunk in yet.”

Paul commented: “Although this has happened to us overnight, it’s going to take months and weeks for us to sort it out. We’re very normal people and will remain so, but it makes me feel very happy inside to know those I love most will be helped by this incredible stroke of good fortune.

“We couldn’t be more delighted. It just goes to show that extraordinary things can happen to ordinary families,” he said.
