Kwinana scaf­fold­ing cou­ple claim $1m in Lotto

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News -

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.
