School dinner lady vows to carry on working after £1million Mother's Day Lottery win

A SCHOOL dinner lady has vowed to carry on working after rustling up a £1million Lottery win.

Karen Dakin, 53, won in the draw hours before Mother’s Day, with numbers based on the birth of her son Callum, 14.

She said: “My son has, in some strange way, helped give me the most amazing Mother’s Day gift of all time!”

She plans to buy a new house as well as a car for NHS storeman hubby Jeff, 60, who had a serious stroke in 2018.

A long-awaited holiday is also planned.

She said: “We’d love to get away – maybe Center Parcs before a big trip to Disney World in Florida.”

But Karen, of Ipswich, added: “I’ve no plans to give up being a dinner lady.

“I love my job, school and all the kids.”


She added: “I’ve always picked numbers special to me, including my son Callum’s date of birth – the year and the time – so I instantly recognised the winning numbers.

“What an amazing turn of events.”

Karen celebrated her win into the early hours of Mother’s Day before calling Camelot at 9am to confirm her prize.
