LUCKY CLICK: I won £16k prize in web competition weeks after my wife died & I lost my home – now I can pay off debt & go on holiday {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A MAN who lost his wife and their family home in the same year has won a spectacular £16,000 prize in a web competition.

Darren Palmer, 55, said he "can't believe" his luck after bagging an electric mountain bike worth over £6,000 and £10,000 in cash.The children’s home housekeeper from Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, hit the jackpot after entering an online competition with BOTB. The company runs extraordinary competitions each week to give Brits a chance of scoring a supercar and some money - for less than £1.

After paying just 55p to enter, Darren was thrilled to discover he had scooped the reward. The dad tragically lost his wife to Covid last year, before losing his beloved home and racking up thousands of pounds of debt.
But his fortunes finally changed when he won the online competition - and he credits his late spouse for "giving him a bit of good luck".

Discussing his win, Darren said: "I’ve never won anything in my life.

"I can’t believe it. I’ve only been playing a few weeks."

He now hopes to pay off his arrears with his windfall - while having a fast and furious mountain bike to play on too. The dedicated housekeeper continued: "I lost my wife to Covid last year and it’s been a rough time since then.

"I’m sure she’s looking down on me and had something to do with this bit of good luck for me.

"I lost the house when my wife died and so I have some debts to pay, this money will help out with all of that and get us back on our feet.

"I'd also love to go to Florida with my friend who also lost his wife. And, of course, I'll help the kids out with whatever they need. "

As well as securing £10,000 in cash, Darren was awarded a stunning Greyp G6.2 electric mountain bike.
