Here is Blantyre lady Jessie Mains in September 1978 collecting her winning cheque for the Hamilton Accies Lottery!
Jessie won £1,000 (the equivalent of £6,000 in today’s money) and picked up her winnings from footballer Jim Baxter and comedian Mr Abie. Her big win was announced after a match. I hope Jessie treated herself to something nice.
