National Bingo’s Lucky Winner!

Julie Bowes-Shorten, of Sprowston, won the National Bingo Game prize of £100,000 playing bingo while playing the game in her Norwich club.

The Norwich mum, who is currently receiving treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, had only joined Mecca earlier this year “to get out of the house” after recovering from two previous bouts of cancer.

She said she was gob smacked to scoop the top prize after completing a full house in 40 numbers, the lowest call in any of the 470 clubs playing nationwide, as well as the £495 house prize.

Mrs Bowes-Shorten, who has three children and four grandchildren, said: “I sat there in shock when I realised I had won. I thought I must have just won the house prize.

“My friend had to tell me three times how much I had actually won to get it across to me.”
