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.'

Eleanor shared her prize trolley-load- which totalled �207 - with her son and friends and added: 'There was enough for us for Christmas and the New Year – it was excellent.'

Store manager Mark Dixon said: 'We really admired Eleanor for doing the dash and were only too pleased to help her – she's a very determined lady!'
