A school worker has won free shopping at Tesco in a Guardian Series competition.

Teresa Nickolson, 61, of Weald Hall Lane in Thornwood, collected 26 £100 shopping vouchers yesterday.

She said: “I was quite astonished; I never usually enter these sorts of things. It was well worth the price of the stamp I used to enter.

“I have a son and a daughter and a cat who live with me so most of it will be spent on them. I’ve already given them a voucher each.

“I would like to thank everyone involved today in giving me such a wonderful prize.”
