Emma Mara, from Haresfinch, was the recipent of an incredible £105,000 on Radio City’s Cash Register competition. 

Emma was at work in a St Helens estate agents when she got the life-changing call from Radio City’s Hattie Pearson.

When Emma found out she’d won, she was noticeably lost for words.

Once reassured the call was genuine, she told Hattie: “I was going teetotal for April, but a bottle of Prosecco is getting opened tonight!” 

Emma said she hasn’t been on holiday for 10 years so that has gone straight to the top of her list.
