Granny’s trolley dash win at Cromer Co-Op food store is festive treat
Grandmother Eleanor Life shrugged off the years to take part in a trolley dash after scooping the prize in the North Norfolk News.
Eighty-one-year-old Mrs Life, who suffers from arthritis, grabbed over �200 worth of goods from the shelves of the Anglia Co-operative foodstore in Middlebrook Way, Cromer.
Eleanor, who lives in Sheringham with husband Sidney, had a helping hand in the shape of store team leader Jayne Saddler-Barker.
She said: 'I never win anything and when the North Norfolk News called to say I'd won the competition I was determined to do the trolley dash myself.
'A lady from the store helped me. I was thrilled to bits to do it and more than pleased with the final total.'
