Lottery win for Stratford-on-Avon couple

Stratford Editorial 7th Nov, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

A LUCKY couple from Stratford are celebrating after scooping £100,000 – all because of a loaf of bread.

Oligert Kadriu and his wife Jurgena were travelling home from work on Thursday October 30 when they popped into the One Stop on Rother Street for some bread and milk.

On the spur of the moment Oligert decided he would buy a £4 Million Purple Scratchcard but waited until the couple got home to see if he had won anything.

He scratched, revealed the £100,000 but did not believe his eyes.

The 30- year-old said: “I looked at the scratchcard and the tiny £100,000 but didn’t believe it. I didn’t think it was real. I showed my wife who told me to take it to the store to get it checked. The One Stop store is further away so I decided to pop into my local Morrisons because it’s closer and had it checked there.

“The lady on the counter checked it out and said she needed to see a supervisor. By her reaction I knew I had won, so I whispered to her that it was because it was a huge £100,000 winner before letting out a big scream throughout the store.”

Oligert then drove home to be with his 19 year-old pregnant wife before contacting The National Lottery to stake his claim.

He continued: “I can’t believe that I just popped into the shop to get milk and some bread and now I have a load of dough! £100,000 worth of dough to be exact – it feels fantastic.”

Oligert works as a receptionist at a salon in Stratford. Jurgena is a housewife and mother to their six-month-old son.

They plan to use the money to buy as house somewhere in Stratford and also have a holiday with all the family, possibly in Zante.

Oligert continued: “The win couldn’t have come at a better time for my family with Christmas just around the corner and with Jurgena expecting our second child.”
