‘I love working Christmas Day, it’s a special time for people in the care home’ says selfless millionaire nurse

A CARE worker has pledged to still work a 12-hour shift on Christmas Day despite winning £1million on the Lotto.

Patricia Aldridge, 55, insisted “nothing will change” after she and her husband Robert were presented with their huge cheque for the jackpot today.

The care assistant at a Dementia and Alzheimer’s residential home in Slough, Berks, also promised to still work a 12-hour shift on Christmas Day despite her big win.

She said: “I really don’t mind working Christmas because I love it. It’s a special time for people in the care home.

“I’ve already committed to working Christmas Day and could not drop out now and make someone else have to change their Christmas plans”.

Instead, the Aldridges will celebrate over the weekend.

After a tragic Christmas last year, following the death of her brother on Christmas Eve, the couple feel their “luck has turned” and are looking forward to having something to celebrate this year.

“We lost both my parents just before Christmas a few years ago so its been hard to celebrate,” she said.

“Then last year we made an effort again, only to lose my brother to heart failure on Christmas Eve.

“It’s been so tough, but we hope that this win heralds a new season of joy in our family.

“I was really beginning to think we were cursed for Christmas.”

The couple had bought a lottery ticket every week for the last 23 years and now want to use the money to help out their family and friends.

“We’ll still be us, just safe in the knowledge that we can help out our children.

“My eldest son works and lived in London, but it got expensive so he’s actually moved in with his other half’s mum. They were looking to move out [and] the money will help them get their own place.

“This win does not bring our loved ones back, but it does mean we can help out our nearest and dearest and that is a gift that anyone would want”.
