£900 winner in Post bingo
A COUPLE from Patchway are celebrating after winning a £900 roll-over in The Post's Roads to Riches Bingo game.
Seven other readers claimed £100 each in the £25,000 giveaway.
Those who picked up a bingo card in the paper ticked off road names printed throughout last week in a race for a prize.
But Karen Taylor, 34, a health and social care assessor, who picked up her bingo card in yesterday's paper, was particularly lucky.

She listened in to That Morning Thing with Downsy, Alice and Richard on 106.5 Jack FM and was stunned to hear the road name printed on her card – Stapleton Road – read out on air. As there had been no winners in the on-air "daily bonus prize" part of the game for nine days, it meant she won the £900 rollover.
Mrs Taylor and her husband Andy, are now looking forward to paying off their credit card bills. They have recently landscaped the back garden of their home in Hammond Road.
She said: "I couldn't believe it when I heard the presenters on Jack FM read out Stapleton Road for the daily bonus prize. I had only just picked up my bingo card yesterday morning – I was absolutely ecstatic."
More bingo cards will be inserted in the paper on March 25.
The giveaway is being sponsored by www.bingoclubhouse.com/bristol, which is offering a third way for readers to win with their bingo card by staging an online game every Thursday.
