SIXTEEN-year-old Callie Rogers was the toast of Cockermouth Co-op in Cumbria after she she scooped £ 1.875 million on the National Lottery using her regular birthday numbers.
Callie, who worked part-time in the North Eastern & Cumbria store, phoned her manager the day after winning an eighth share of the £ 15 million jackpot to say she wouldn't be coming in again ? a decision that is completely understood by the society.
Spokeswoman Suzanne Heron said: "We wish Callie all the best. After winning that sort of money, you wouldn't want to carry on working, so we completely understand. Another former North East Co-op employee won a Lottery jackpot a couple of years back, so we are all hoping someone from the society can give us a hat-trick of major wins."
Now Callie ? Britain's second youngest Lottery jackpot winner ? plans to spend part of her windfall on a house, a car, a holiday in Bermuda and treats for her family and friends, but says she intends eventually to train to become a social worker.
She said: "I don't want to shop and blow the money; I don't want diamonds. I just want to be comfortable and look after the people who have looked after me."
