A DELIGHTED Exmouth woman said she is feeling 'on top of the world' after scooping the top prize in a charity lottery.

Vera Weaver, of Mount Pleasant Avenue, scooped �1000 in a Hospiscare lottery last week.

The 74-year-old, who cares for her husband Lesley, 78, said the win was extra special because she had only been taking part in the game for eight weeks.

"It was such a lovely surprise to find out I had won. I'm not sure what I'll be spending the money on yet," she added.
