A National Lottery scratchcard jackpot worth £250,000 has been landed by a businesswoman from London. Falguni Patel, who lives in Neasden, was playing Deal or No Deal scratchcard game which is based on the hugely popular television game show of the same name.
It was the first time she had played the game, and her ‘beginners luck’ definitely paid off! “I have never won much before on scratchcards or on Lotto, but I knew the card was new as I had seen the ad on TV and thought lets give it a go,” Falguni said.
Falguni has a busy life. As well as being a part time teacher she runs a business called FalMay providing ‘pamper parties’. According to her web site these are designed to give her clients ‘time to relax and receive treatments in the comfort of their home and catch up with their friends and family at the same time.’
Now that she is £250,000 richer, Falguni plans to invest some of the cash into her FalMay business and also treat her family members. “The business is doing really well but I shall use some of the win to build it further,” Falguni explained. “I want to help my brother who has been studying in the USA with his student loans, my disabled sister to receive private treatment and my Mum and Dad with a retirement plan. I should be able to put some money towards a house and if there is any left my mum has always wanted a BMW so I will treat her.”
Falguni will also be making a donation to charity. “Each year FalMay supports a charity with a range of fundraising events,” she said. “This year it is Save the Children so I will be making a donation to them.”
