A GREAT-GRANDFATHER who celebrates his 93rd birthday on Christmas Day has another reason to celebrate - winning £20,000.
Lancelot Noel Bell, of Lindley, won the whopping sum after his numbers came up in Huddersfield Town's Blue and White Foundation jackpot draw.
The prize is the biggest amount the foundation, which costs £2 a week to join, has ever given away.
Former fireman and barber Lancelot has been a member of the foundation for just 18 months, joining in March last year.
His daughter, Barbara Dixon, 65, said she was told of her father's win.
She added: "Town tried to get in contact with my dad, but they couldn't. So they got hold of me.
"I couldn't believe it when they said he had won £20,000. I couldn't stop laughing.
"We got my dad to join the Blue and White Foundation because he kept getting junk mail through the door saying he had won money - but of course he hadn't.
"He was disappointed when he realised he hadn't won and would call me and tell me.
"It was a great surprise for me to call him to tell him he had won this!"
Lancelot said he already had plans for the cash.
He said: "First of all I'm going to buy a new pair of trousers.
"After that I'm not sure.
"I think it would be nice to leave my family with some money, so I'll probably do that.
"It's been a great surprise."
