Mum-of-two stayed to finish care home shift despite discovering she won £1million on scratchcard

A MUM of two stayed to finish her care home shift after finding out she had landed £1million on a lottery scratchcard.

Stunned Sara Thomas, 26, asked colleagues to ring Camelot to check her jackpot was for real.

She broke the news to partner Sean Warner, 28, who urged her to take the rest of the day off but she kept working.

Sara, from Merthy r Tydfil, South Wales, said: “I was gobsmacked when I won.

“When I told Sean, he said I should leave work for the day but we were short-staffed and I didn’t want to let the girls down so I stayed.

“The rest of the day was a bit of a blur.”

Sara, who bought her winning 50X Scratchcard at Londis in Treharris, plans to buy a new house with Sean but will remain at the care home.

She said: “I love my job.

"The patients appreciate you being there for them when they can’t see their family.”
