A Donegal man went on a Winning Streak last Saturday (November 17) scooping a whopping €52,000 from the National Lottery TV gameshow on RTÉ One.

Christopher Chambers from Letterkenny got his Winning Streak appearance off to a flier as he won €40,000 on his first game, Patience.

All in all, Christopher won a total of €52,000 on the show. The day before he celebrated the first anniversary of his wedding to Michelle so it was a weekend to remember for both! The couple have been together for more than five years.

The couple were visiting friends in Letterkenny last Saturday night week when his wife Michelle excitedly burst through the door to tell him that he had been called out to appear on Winning Streak.

What was planned on being a quiet evening was a memorable night of celebrations!

Christopher has worked for Aurivo (Donegal Creameries) for the past five years and was supported, in RTÉ by his daughter Stacey (9), his parents Margaret and John, his two brothers, Andrea and Barry and his two sisters Margo and Mary.

Christopher has no real for his plans for his winning yet but he will be in touch with Santa to make sure that his daughter Stacey has an extra special birthday and Christmas as she turns 10 on Christmas Eve.
