Jackpot: Denise and Robert Scarr have won £6.3 million on the lottery..
A couple who landed a Lotto jackpot of £6.3 million have quit their jobs to fulfil their “lifelong dreams”.
A world cruise and a top-of-the-range BMW car are at the top of the shopping list for Denise and Robert Scarr from Morecambe.
They also plan to move to a bigger home and treat their family, which includes seven children and 15 grandchildren.
Robert, 59, and Denise, 56, discovered they had won Saturday’s jackpot when they watched the draw live on television.
Mrs Scarr said her husband began screaming after they had won £25 for three numbers but then he let out an “almighty scream” when realising they had all six numbers.
She said: “Things like this don’t happen to people like us.
“It was then a case of waiting to see how many jackpot winners there had been. It was a couple of hours later we discovered we were the only ones and had won more than £6m.
“This is just life-changing and totally unbelievable. A massive amount of money.”
Mrs Scarr, who worked at homewares store Dunelm Mill in Morecambe, immediately handed in her notice as did her husband, who previously worked at a quarry.
She added: “Retirement was first on the agenda. The win has enabled us to both retire early and look forward to fulfilling all of our life-long dreams.
“We have both longed to go on a cruise for years but were trying to manage the finances around this and the countries we wanted to visit. Now the world is our oyster – a world cruise will definitely be booked for us now.”
The couple bought their Lucky Dip ticket from Morrisons supermarket in their home town.
The winning numbers for the jackpot of £6,311,254 were 1, 18, 20, 31, 38 and 47.
