CANAAN, CT (WCMH) — A great-grandmother won $30,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket, and she says she’s going to use some of her winnings to upgrade her technology.

The great-grandmother from Canaan, Connecticut, went out and bought a new mobile phone, Today reports.

“I had a little (cellphone) that I always used because I was afraid I’d fall, but now I have a button for that,” McCafferty told Today. “I already have a computer and an iPad, so I wanted to have a good phone with me to take decent pictures when I see something.

Plus a lot of times I’m busy while I’m sitting in my recliner, so now I have the phone right in my hand for anything I need.”

She says she also plans on giving some money to her daughter.
