The couple is from Ashby in Leicestershire. They recently won the wonderful amount of £53,590.20 in the Euromillions draw that took place on the 8th of April. The two winners are Rowena Barnwell and her husband Richard Brown. The couple wants to be very cautious when it comes to spending their winnings because something like this doesn’t come around every day. Rowena said she’d be satisfied with a handbag or two.
The morning after the Euromillions draw had taken place, Rowena got an email advising her to check her account. Feeling nervous and excited, Rowena did as advised and went into her account. She only expected to see “a few pounds” reflecting in her account. When she saw the actual prize amount, she couldn’t believe her eyes and had to stare at the screen for a long time before she could come to terms with the fact that she had just won £53,590.20.
Rowena is 50-years-old and her husband is 56-years-old. Rowena raced downstairs to explain the wonderful news to her husband. She asked him to double check what she had seen, and after he was sure it was the truth and that all their winning lotto numbers matched, he immediately got on the phone with Camelot. Rowena still wasn’t sure if she was dreaming or not.
This couple is the latest lottery winners in the Midlands region of England. This is a very exciting opportunity for the couple since they both support Premier League leaders Leicester City. They have a 21-year-old son, Josh, and an 18-year-old daughter Molly. They all celebrated their magnificent lotto win with champagne and chocolates.
The family hasn't made up their minds yet on how to spend their winnings, but the couple wants to be cautious with their money. They said they won’t splurge it on meaningless material objects and would rather put the money away for the kids. For Rowena, she said that she would be happy with “a nice handbag or two.”
