New Journeys Ahead for Victoria Set for Life Winner02/08/2018
Colleen Woods of Victoria is looking forward to indulging her travel bug after winning $675,000 from her Set for Life ticket.
“I was at home when I scratched my ticket and realized I had won. I sat there in disbelief and wasn’t sure if it was real,” she said. Woods then validated her ticket at London Drugs to confirm she had won. “The screen said ‘major winner’ and everyone looked at me with their jaws dropped to the ground. I was so happy; it’s something everyone dreams about!” she added.
Woods is enjoying the feeling of being a winner and looking forward to spending her winnings on travelling. “I’m retired, I have been travelling, enjoying time with my friends and meeting new people,” Woods said. “I’m quite happy in my life. I am dreaming about where I should travel to next and the new experiences my journeys will take me.”
Woods purchased the winning Set for Life ticket at the Town Pantry on Shelbourne Street.
