Lucky Castle Bromwich players celebrate an amazing £2 Million win
Players in B36 9 in Castle Bromwich are feeling like royalty after sharing a whopping £2 Million win with the February Postcode Millions.
There were tears of joy and plenty of cuddles at the winners' event at Fazeley Studios in Birmingham where players found out exactly how much they had won. One lucky player scooped the lion's share of the prize pot when B36 9HD was revealed as the full winning postcode. The winner, who wished to remain anonymous, was delighted to walk away with £400,000.
Vincent Cappellie was shocked to discover that he had won £42,663 and danced on stage to receive his cheque. "I'm not usually dumbstruck but I'm totally lost for words," he said. Vincent, who was joined by his wife Jenny, is hoping to take a trip with his family. "Vincent is so hard working and is always the one looking after everyone else," Jenny said. "He deserves a break."
Vincent, who runs his own security company, is planning to surprise his rest of his family. "My 22 year old son Chace works in an office nearby," he said. "I'm going to casually walk in holding the cheque to see how he reacts."
Alan Merritt, who will celebrate his ruby wedding anniversary this year, was over the moon to be awarded £21,331. Alan announced that he would be taking his wife Bridget to Venice later in the year with his winnings.
A total of 103 players were part of the People's Postcode Lottery celebration with prizes ranging from £7,110 to £400,000.
One winner, Katerina Bates, drove away with a brand new BMW 1 Series, as well as pocketing a cheque for £14,221. "I've never won anything before. I'm so excited," she said. "I was hoping to buy a new car this year and now I don't have to." Katerina, who was joined by her 18 year old daughter Kez, has only been playing People's Postcode Lottery for two months. "I just thought I would give it a try," she said. "I can't believe I've won so soon. I can't wait to celebrate with my family."
People's Postcode Lottery Ambassador Judie McCourt said, "Everyone has had a great day at the beautiful Fazeley Studios. The sun stayed out which was great and a lot of winners were very emotional when receiving their cheques. We've also had some of the fantastic charities that are here today who have been able to showcase the great work that is achieved though players' support."
