image for Plimpton man in stroke of good fortune
Alf has had a very hard life.

Retired Plimpton gardener Alf Potts could not believe his luck this week when a gold envelope hit his doormat.

"I've never won anything in my life before", said Alf, 78, "so this is a real thrill. My wife died last year, and I will go to visit my son in America" he explained.

The envelope explained how Alf had been chosen at random from a list of thousands of people, and had probably already won £25,000.

The envelope contained a scratch-card that the pensioner got a winning line on, and a car-key which probably would fit a car which Alf would probably win.
