Kwinana scaffolding couple claim $1m in Lotto
A husband and wife scaffolding duo from Kwinana are WA’s latest millionaires after coming forward to claim $1 million in Wednesday Lotto prize money.
The couple’s winning ticket was one of two produced by WA in last week’s draw and were the State’s 55th and 56th Division 1 wins for the year.
The Kwinana woman, aged in her 50s, said the couple would be heading into retirement after the win.
“Scaffolding is hard yakka so we’re pretty excited that an early retirement is now on the cards,” she said. “My hubby was away working FIFO when I called him with the big news — he immediately went and told his boss that he’d be a danger to have on site as his head was spinning.
“He was on the next flight home in no time.”
The couple’s daughter said she was over the moon her parents could now consider hanging up their hard-hats.
“Mum and dad have worked so hard their whole lives and have faced quite a few health issues as a result of 30-odd years of scaffolding, ”she said.
