St Austell Gardener's Lottery Win
2:01pm 13th March 2013
A St Austell gardener has raked in one million pounds on a scratchcard.
Lee Orchard bought the ticket in Roche last week on a whim.
Now the 30 year old and his wife Laura are looking forward to a new house, car and treating their two children.
Lee said: "I just kept looking at it, probably like ten times. I just, you know, couldn't believe my eyes and I went straight back into the shop to get them to check it, and the lady said I've got to contact Camelot. So then I was thinking, 'it's got to be something'."
Lee and Laura, a spa beautician, have two children aged 3 and 8 months.
The family currently rent a two-bedroom house in St Austell, but already have plans to move to a bigger house using their new-found fortune.
Lee added: "Buying a house is top of the shopping list. We've got two children, a boy and a girl, and we didn't really want them to have to share a room when they got older."
"We're definitely going to buy a bigger family home now, probably somewhere rural and quiet. I grew up near Indian Queens so I'd quite like to find somewhere near there.
"We both want to keep working as we enjoy our jobs, but this win will take the pressure off. Laura might go part-time to spend a bit more time with the children while they're young, but being able to move house is a big deal for us. My car is an old banger and on its last legs so it'll be great to upgrade to a nice family car and not worry about repair bills."
"Other than that, I'd like to take the kids to Disneyland when they're a bit older - it's somewhere I always wanted to go when I was a child so it would be great to do it with them."
