Fight Against Maturity

Starving student no longer starving

A starving student has walked out of his corner shop 100,000 pounds richer after spending the change from some cornflakes on a scratchcard.

On Sunday, Paul Thomas popped out of his student house in Pen-y-Wain Road, Cardiff, to buy some cereal and bought a National Lottery Scratchcard with the 1 pound change. The 24-year-old said he was too hungry to scratch off the numbers in the shop and waited until he got home.

Mr Thomas said: “I hadn’t gone out with the plan of buying a scratchcard – I just wanted some breakfast. It was a spur of the moment thing.  I was so hungry I didn’t bother scratching the card in the shop, I did it back at home while eating my cornflakes. When all the noughts came up, I just couldn’t believe my eyes.”
