Rich Morning For Horning
One People's Postcode Lottery player is breathing a sigh of relief, as well as cheers of delight this weekend, as she almost missed a £25,000 win.
Kay Harmer recently moved house – and postcode – and was only just included in the draw with her old postcode, NR12 8PB.
She said, "I have changed my postcode but only just, so my old postcode was included in the last draw – thank goodness!
"I just can't wipe this grin off my face! I need to calm down."
Although Kay is still in shock over her Street Prize win, she knows exactly how she's going to spend it. "We really want a motor home," she said. "My dad got one recently and we loved it and now we can splash out on one."
Kay, who owns a car company with her husband Geoffrey, is looking forward to celebrating her win with her daughter Holly at the weekend. "I'm sure we'll treat Holly to something for her home," she said.
People's Postcode Lottery Ambassador Jeff Brazier said, "I was delighted to meet Kay today! Kay and her husband are clearly over the moon with their win, and I'm so glad they didn't miss out."
Players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £154 Million to date for over 2,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
A project near Horning that has received support from players is The Bramerton Society, which was awarded more than £1,100 this year to create a community orchard.
Northampton players were also in luck this weekend, as NN5 5AN was the winner of the second Saturday Street Prize.
