Bingo winner thanks TV Uri for good luck
EILEEN Taylor has had a run of good luck ever since she saw famed psychic and spoon bender Uri Geller on television.
Uri told viewers to touch an orange dot on the screen and think positive.
Since then, Eileen, of Mountdale Gardens, Leigh, has had some of her dearest wishes come true – and she has also started winning things.
She is among four winners on Game 3 of Echo Bingo who share the first prize of £450. Each get £112.50.
Eileen, meanwhile, also picked the winner in the Grand National on Saturday and won about £70 with a £3 each-way bet on the 16-1 horse Miinnehoma.
The delighted mum-of-two, who works as a medical secretary, said: “I saw Uri Geller about a week ago on a breakfast TV programme. Viewers were told to go up and rub the orange dot and imagine the things they really want.
“Since then, really important personal things have started to go right after years of me hoping.”
Eileen’s 30-year-old son, who is deaf, has at last been told that money will be made available to him for an interpreter and her daughter has found a permanent home to settle in.
Eileen, 57, said: “It’s probably just coincidence, but everything has been going right ever since seeing the programme. If I’d heard anyone else saying such things, I’d think they were nutty but I intend to carry on thinking positive and thinking of the colour orange, as he said to do.”
“To win the bingo and the Grand National in the same week is great. Now I intend to get some Premium Bonds!”
Eileen said Uri had been on the GMTV show several times and lots of viewers had rung in to say they’ve had good luck.
The three other Echo bingo winners are Mrs Doreen Townsend, Shaftesbury Avenue, Southend; Mrs Gwen Edmunds, Cotswold Avenue, Rayleigh; and Mrs Joan Ashurst, of Louis Drive Rayleigh.
RACING CERT: Echo bingo winner Eileen Taylor also came up trumps in the Grand National after taking the advice of TV psychic Uri Geller and thinking positive.

"Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity."

"The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues."

"The Geller Effect is one of those "para" phenomena which changed the world of phusics. What the most outstanding physicists of the last decades of this country colud grasp only as theoretical implication, Uri brought as fact into everyday life.."

"I Have watched Uri Geller... I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again."
