A COLLEGE student is planning a dream wedding after scooping a £100,000 National Lottery scratchcard jackpot.

Dane Belk-Gregory, 24, had called into his local shop to buy two cans of drink and said he’d only bought the scratchcard as an after-thought,

Dane, a student at Myerscough College, Bilsborrow, said: “I had literally dashed into the shop to buy some pop and as I had change in my pocket I decided to buy a Scratchcard.

“I actually rubbed it off in the shop and I just could not believe it when I discovered I had won £100,000. I thought there must have been a mistake. I was in utter shock. I just ran out of the shop and ran all of the way home – I even forgot to take the pop with me which I had just bought.”

Dane, who has a two year old daughter, Brooke, is engaged to his childhood sweetheart of eight years, Ciara Doyle, also 24, says they are now able to plan a dream wedding.

He added: “I can now give Ciara the wedding which she has always dreamed of. We are planning to get married next year. Before this win it would have been years before we could have afforded to get married.”

The Animal Studies student from Fleetwood says they are also planning to buy a house, a new car and have a special honeymoon.
