I won a 180mph Porsche 911 worth £100k for just £10 – but I'm getting rid of it | The Sun

A GRAN who won an incredible £100,000 Porsche 911 sports car for just £10 now says she's GETTING RID of it.

Joanne McGuigan, 49, of Fife, Scotland, scooped the red sportscar in the Omaze Million Pound House Draw but is not giving up her trusty Vauxhall Corsa.

The gran-of-four first thought it was "too good to be true" when she was told that she had won the supercar.

The former paediatric nurse didn't even bother telling her car-mad husband Iain, 52, to avoid getting his hopes up.

The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe was an "Early Bird Prize" in the Omaze draw that she had entered with just £10.

Despite winning the£100,000 motor Joanne does not have any plans to part with her nippy Vauxhall Corsa VXR worth £10, 000.

She said: "I'd just come in from work and saw an email from Omaze saying I'd won something.

"I thought it sounded too good to be true so didn't even mention to my husband when he came home.

"Later that night I decided to check it again and was flabbergasted to find that my entry code did indeed match – and I'd genuinely won a Porsche!

"I have never won anything before this so I'm still in shock to be honest."

It is the first time Joanne has been inside a Porsche and after taking the car for a spin she said: "I can safely say it's definitely quicker than my Vauxhall!"

Joanne, who recently started working as a training officer through her local council said: "As much as my husband would love to keep it, the money we'll get from selling it is life-changing.

"We're going to sell it and use the money to pay off our mortgage – and treat our children and grandchildren."

Joanne's entry still stands in the main draw which is for a stunning £4,500,000 waterfront house in Cornwall – as part of Omaze's biggest-ever prize draw, raising vital funds for Marie Curie.

The luxury waterfront home features a state-of-the-art kitchen and breakfast room, a yoga studio, multiple en-suites, and its own private terrace.

The grand prize winner will instantly become a multi-millionaire – as well as being given £100,000 in cash to go alongside the house.

The Cornwall II House Draw will support the end of life charity, Marie Curie, helping it provide care and support to more people affected by terminal illness.

Omaze has guaranteed a minimum donation of £100,000 and has a target of at least £500,000.

Matthew Reed, Chief Executive at Marie Curie, said: "Every five minutes, someone in the UK dies without the care and support they need.

"This is heart-breaking for each person this happens to, and for the people who love them.

"This partnership will raise important funds and awareness so that Marie Curie can be there for more people with a terminal illness."

James Oakes at Omaze said: "We're honoured to be partnering with Marie Curie for our biggest ever house draw, in Cornwall.

"We're incredibly proud that the Omaze community has already raised £11,150,000 for good causes across the UK."
