Jocelyn, from Roman Way in Haverhill, had her name picked out after putting it into a free prize draw run by the centre on its annual open day on September 6.
She said: “My son had an appointment regarding apprenticeships and I came in with him and entered the competition.
“They rang me last Friday and said I had won, which was lovely.
“It’s a really nice surprise.”
As well as winning the free camera Jocelyn - who professed to knowing very little about photography - now has a place on a digital photography course run over five weeks by West Suffolk College at the Menta Business Centre in Hollands Road, Haverhill, with one lesson per Monday afternoon.
Other courses on offer are tai chi, Indian head massage, Indian cookery, sign language, art for fun and make up.
