1978 Jessie Mains and Accies Lottery


1978 Jessie Mains wins Accies Lottery wmHere 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.
