Gran-of-four Valerie McCullough, 72, of Walton Lane, Barrow, won £100 cash. She said: “I won £50 a very long time ago so it’s great to have won something.

“I have won a number of prizes from the Evening Mail over the years, including a weekend away with my husband for New Year’s Eve.”
Mrs Humes said she has never paid more than £5 for a pair of sunglasses, but said she can really tell the difference.
She added: “You can tell these ones aren’t cheap. I’ve been walking down Dalton Road with them on and enjoying the sunshine.
“I feel so lucky to have won. I’d filled the entry form but left it on the fireplace for two weeks before my husband posted it. I’ve never paid more than £5 for sunglasses, so I’m absolutely thrilled!
“They are really lovely. I particularly like the bits of red on the arms of the glasses.”
