A grandmother can now buy her granddaughter a trampoline after winning top prize on a scratchcard.
June Kilbourn, 59, from Harleston, bought the £300,000 winning card from the town's Co-Op on January 10.
The mother-of-two regularly buys scratchcards from the shop on her way to work as a horticultural worker at Wharton's Nursery container site in Weybread, near Harleston.
She decided to treat herself to one as it was her son Jason's birthday.
She has now promised her four-year-old granddaughter Ava the trampoline she has long dreamt of.
