Life-changing €9.5m lottery win for trucker and his disabled daughter

A young disabled woman’s life will change forever after her family won nearly € 10 million.

Newly minted millionaires Paul and Debbie Lawton scooped some €9.5 million in the UK National Lottery and said they plan to use the money to give their 28-year-old daughter Tracey, whose suffers from Cerebral Palsy, a better life.

“It’s very, very simple – the money will be spent making my family’s lives safe and secure,” said Paul.

“We live in a house that has been modified with Tracey’s need in mind but this win means that we can now search for a lovely big bungalow that can be fitted out properly.

“It can have better access for Tracey and a bigger bathroom she can have a bath again, she loves her baths.”

The Yorkshire couple’s lucky numbers came up on the UK’s Lotto Double Rollover Jackpot, and despite the win, neither are looking to quit their jobs.

Now the family, including daughters Nicola (26) and Deborah (24), are planning a big trip to Las Vegas to celebrate winner Debbie’s 50th birthday.
