Kent Pensioner Scoops a £20,000 Bingo Win

72 year old Heather Taylor from Sheerness in Kent has just netted a huge £20,000 while playing bingo in Herne Bay!
The great-grandmother has been a regular at the Connaught Bingo Club on the seafront in Herne Bay for the past 15 years – along with her husband Eric.

Heather scooped the huge win as she was taking part in a national game on a machine, and received the cheque last Friday.

The windfall has been especially fortuitous, as she will be celebrating her ruby wedding anniversary on 10th May.

Heather said: “When it happened I couldn’t believe it. It was as though I didn’t even know my own numbers because I was so gobsmacked it happened so quickly.

“I put my pound coin into the machine for the national game, and every number just kept coming up.

“I couldn’t believe they were my numbers I had pressed. Everyone was clapping and cheering.

“It was a nice reception from everyone there. I felt over the moon and still can’t believe it now. To be honest, when I was on my way home I had spent the money 10 times over in my head.”

Heather is now preparing a big celebration party and will renew her wedding vows with Eric next month. She also hopes to do some work to her garden, and to travel to Dubai to visit her daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She says: “I’m a real bingo addict. I’ve been playing for more than 50 years and I love it. I suppose Eric is not as keen as I am, but he comes along and was very pleased he came with me on Friday!

“We like to go to the smaller clubs as they are more fun.

“We’ve been going to Herne Bay because we like the seafront there and it’s nice to go and make a day of it. It’s a bit of a trek, but the Connaught is a really friendly club.”

Connaught’s assistant manager Trevor Scandrett, confirmed Mrs Taylor won £20,585 while playing.

He said: “The place exploded when she won. She is a really lovely lady and we often see her here.”

Huge congratulations to Mrs Taylor (and hubby!) from us at WDW Bingo!
