A mother has been left astounded after winning £10,000 every month for the next year when her daughter put a National Lottery ticket into her birthday card.
Cheryl Crowley from Brent, north west London, was given the card by her daughter Jade, 27, for her 45th birthday on May 7.
Mother-of-three Jade had purchased a selection of Lucky Dip tickets for the Set For Life draw the day before and slipped them into her mother’s birthday card.
And primary school teacher Mrs Crowley couldn’t believe her luck when she checked the numbers and realised she was a big winner.

She told the Metro: ‘It’s been a very difficult time for our family.
‘We lost a very dear family member to Covid and had to scrimp and scrape to get the money together to give her the send-off she deserved, so to finally have something positive to celebrate has quite literally made my dad’s year, and possibly decade!’
The family credit their win to Mrs Crowley’s father, who has always said they would ‘win big’ on the lottery one day.
Jade told the publication: ‘My mum is just amazing. She’s been a primary school teacher for 15 years but still found time to care for an aged relative and help with my three kids, she deserves this so much.’

The family are planning on spending their winnings on luxury shopping excursions, bingo trips and visiting the beach.
And Mrs Crowley says the most important thing of all will be that the family is able to spend more time together making memories.
She added: ‘If the past 18 months has taught us anything, it’s to take nothing for granted and to make the most of every moment.’
