The year 2020 has not been at all encouraging for the Adams couple, as David and Shelly had to go through some very difficult months (until the lottery prize came in). Shelly was first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, so she had to quit her job. Later, David's brother died of COVID-19 and her sister-in-law from a heart attack.

And just last month, David lost his job, exactly on Friday, July 31. "Many people would think the redundancy was the worst news but in fact, it’s just the final straw in a catalog of difficulties we have experienced," David recalled.

What the couple did not know was that the next day, the husband would become a millionaire by winning the lottery.

David, 61, was a carpenter, but his services were no longer required. And the pleasant surprise came to the couple living in the county of Oxfordshire, in the United Kingdom, when their numbers in an online lottery draw resulted in them becoming winners of one million pounds, which is about Rs 9.7 crores.

The couple became aware of the fact on Sunday, August 2, when reviewing the results of the previous day's draw. David and Shelly told the local press that they understand the value of money, so they will spend it responsibly. For the moment, they plan to buy a car and take a vacation outside of their country when the coronavirus crisis allows it.

David explained what he would do with the money after going through so many tragedies: "We’ve always worked hard and know the value of money but this is a number far beyond anything we could ever comprehend. We are not going to rush any of our decisions and will take things slowly but there are a few plans for our winnings."

"Firstly a new car is on the cards, a Nissan Qashqai is top of the list, although as I currently drive a Ford Mondeo which has always seen me right, I might take a little browse around the Ford dealership too."
