A Hays Travel agent has described her "absolute shock" after scooping more than £55,000 in a radio competition.
Michele Kirkbride, a homeworker based in Cumbria, won Free Radio’s Cash Register giveaway on Tuesday (24 March).
The competition saw Kirkbride having to answer the phone within five rings - bagging her £55,555.55 in the process.
"I’m so used to picking up quickly for work - I just answered straight away," she told TTG. "I honestly couldn’t believe it."
Kirkbride said she had faced "such a horrible time" due to the industry’s challenges amid the coronavirus pandemic - with a raft of cancelled bookings this month.
"This honestly could not have come at a better time - it’s incredible," she added. "I had to cancel my own holiday to the Maldives, so the first thing I’m going to do with the money is get that rebooked for sure."
