A MUM danced with joy after scooping an incredible £50,000 prize from a 50p bet.

Donna Brookhouse, from Padgate, beat odds of one in 14 million as her 'favourite block of numbers' were the first drawn out on Betfred Bingo.

The care home worked left staff and fellow customers at the bookies on Padgate Lane 'stunned' after dancing on a table when she learned of her jackpot win.

Warrington Guardian:

She said: "It was great fun when I got on the table to dance.

"I just couldn’t help myself.

"The Betfred staff were brilliant, laughing along.

“It’s something I have wanted to do all my life, and I couldn’t help myself.

“I used to dance around my handbag in my teens.

"It is not every day you win so much, and that’s why I got on the wobbly table to dance with joy – I was just so happy, and I still am."

Warrington Guardian:

Donna had been 'working all the overtime available' as head chef at Lady of the Vale Nursing Home in Bowdon in order to buy daughter Bobbie-Jo a new computer ahead of her beginning her childcare studies at Manchester Metropolitan University this week.

The 52-year-old is also planning on using her winnings for a holiday to Greece or Las Vegas, as well as a trip to Mexico for Bobbie-Jo's 21st birthday next year.

She is planning to revamp the garden of her Sheerwater Close home to make it more 'dog friendly' for the family's mischievous pet Labrador Toby.

And with the pair and Donna's long-term partner Russ Cox, 43, all being 'lifelong' Warrington Wolves, they are planning to buy an executive box at the Halliwell Jones Stadium for next season so that they can watch the match in luxury.

Warrington Guardian:

Donna added: "I was putting in all the hours extra I could to pay for Bobbie-Jo’s computer, which I have now bought.

“Our puppy has wrecked the garden, so that can now be sorted out as will some new flooring in the kitchen.

"I can’t wait for the holidays which we can now afford.

"It couldn’t have come at a better time with me doing 80-odd hours a week at work, which is why we haven’t had time to celebrate properly yet.

Warrington Guardian:

"When we get the executive box we might get a visit from Blake Austin or Daryl Clark, who are my favourite players.”

Bobbie-Jo meanwhile is hoping that her mum and youth offenders worker Russ will finally get married after 15 years together.

She said: “I would love to be a bridesmaid.

"They have been with each other long enough now, and they have no excuses any more about whether they can afford a wedding.”

Fred Done, boss of the Birchwood-based bookmaking giants, arranged for the family to be presented with signed Wire shirts and a rugby ball – as well as bottle of champagne – after hearing about Donna's big win.

He added: "To win a life changing amount from less than the price of a Mars bar is fantastic.

"Good luck to Donna, who has told me how she’s going to have some posh holidays after splashing out on her garden."
