LONDON, ONT. -- A London grandfather is looking forward to sharing a $50,000 windfall with family after winning Instant Crossword.
Shiri Chand, 68, let the clerk at Harry’s Mini Mart on Dundas Street in London pick this ticket for him.
“When I saw that I had uncovered 11 words, I went with one of my sons to the store to validate the ticket."
“I was very excited – this is my first big win!”
He plans to buy a house and help his kids.
“I want all my children to have a fair share,” says Chand.
“They can help themselves and others, and take care of me when it is time,” he says.
