£1 Million Prize

Llandeloy Millionaire Street

07 October 2023 - SA62 6LJ - Llandeloy - £1 Million

A plumber found out he'd won the lottery - while he was in Games Of Thrones star Jerome Flynn's attic.

Stunned Sean was renewing a hot water system for Jerome - Bronn in the hit HBO fantasy series - when he got a call from People's Postcode Lottery.

Now the dad-of-two is celebrating with fiancée Caroline after winning £400,000 in our Millionaire Street draw.

Gain Of Thrones

Sean - who's also a tenant farmer - said, "I was in an attic that belongs to the actor Jerome Flynn when I got the phone call. I was a little bit busy and told them I didn't have time to take the call and asked them to ring me back.

"I was back up at Jerome's this morning when a friend of mine messaged me and asked if I knew the Postcode Lottery camera crew were on the street. I phoned Caroline and she said they were, so I came straight home."

And when shaking Sean was presented with his cheque, he said, "I'm gobsmacked and ecstatic," before turning to Caroline and adding, "We're going to get married now."

Sean shared £1 Million with three neighbours in the tiny village of Llandeloy, in Pembrokeshire, Wales, after SA62 6LJ was revealed as the winner of our weekly Millionaire Street prize today.

Every ticket was worth £200,000, but Sean doubled his winnings with two tickets.

Now the dad-of-two plans to give up plumbing and open a therapy farm with his partner.


The couple already have a tenancy on land near their semi where they breed sheep - as well as keeping goats, cows and geese.

But they are down to the last three in a selection process to take over the council tenancy of a larger farm.

And Caroline's dream is to run it as a therapy centre which kids and adults with mental health and mobility problems can visit.

Sean - nicknamed Sean The Sheep - said, "We want to open a therapy farm.

"I've been a self-employed plumber for 18 years... I've also been farming and doing more of that than plumbing.

"We've applied to be tenants of a council farm. We're down to the last three."

He added, "This is life-changing for us and our family. I'm still in shock. This will change a lot of lives."

Caroline - who's known as Mrs Sheep - said, "The farm would be for children and adults who struggle with mental health or people with mobility issues. We want people to be able to come to us to feed the animals and experience the farming side of things.

"It's a bit of a cliché, but farming is definitely a way of life for us."

She added, "Sean does so much for everybody. He's got the biggest heart. He deserves it."

Field Of Dreams

The couple - who have been together for five years and have five daughters between them - now plan to wed after Sean proposed last year.

But he also has another love he might get together with now.

He grinned, "It's been my dream to drive a Formula 1 car round a track. I think I might try to see if I can do that."

He added, "We're a small, close-knit community. We all get on. I'm so pleased for the others who've won, because they're friends and they are genuinely lovely people."


Alan, an ex-Royal Logistics Corps Sergeant, was another delighted winner. Punching the air with excitement after being presented with £200,000, he said, "You've no idea how much this means to me and my kids.

"This is a game-changer for me. I'm having to pinch myself."

He added, "The neighbours here are fantastic. They check in with me, I check in with them. We care for each other.

"It's not unusual for local farmers to leave a box of potatoes or veg on the doorsteps."

Alan, whose semi overlooks rolling countryside, now plans on treating his family. He said, "I'd like a nice holiday for me and the kids. Somewhere with a massive waterpark.

"My son broke his arm a couple of days ago, but he asked if he could get a PlayStation 5. Yes he can!

"My daughter will be sorted out for a car. She's learning at the moment. She wants a Fiat 500.

"I'll do some home improvements, too."

A Golden Surprise

Nearby neighbour Maria also scored a huge win. She kept news of her £200,000 win a secret from Welsh Water worker husband Chris, but planned to surprise him when he got home from work.

Maria, who shares four children and seven grandchildren with her partner, said, "I haven't told my husband yet. I'll wait until he gets home. I might give him the golden envelope with a coffee.

"But I'll make sure he's sitting down. There will probably be a few expletives.

"He's always joking about winning the lottery. But I've told him, 'You have to buy a ticket first, love.'"

Now the college safeguard and disciplinary officer has a long shopping list, including dream holidays, finishing their house renovation and helping family.

She said, "We're doing up the whole house, with an extension and kitchen and we need a new roof.

"I'd also love to go to South Africa, Indonesia, Italy and Sicily."

She added, "I feel sick. This is no chicken feed, is it? Never in my life would I have expected something like this."

Charities Celebrate Too

It's not just Sean and his neighbours who have something to celebrate. Following their Millionaire Street win, local charities in the Haverfordwest area will also benefit.

In fact, local charities in each of the Millionaire Street winning areas announced following October's Postcode Lottery draws will share a combined total of £1 Million.

Greenacres Rescue, the only all-animal rescue in the county of Pembrokeshire, was one local charity in the winning area that benefited, receiving £30,000 in funding from Postcode Community Trust (opens in a new tab), thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery.

The funds will enable the charity to cover the extensive vet bills it faces - upwards of £20,000 a month - while looking after more than 250 animals at any one time.

Georgina Pearson, manager of Greenacres Rescue, said the money would help with one of the most unique rescues they've encountered to date.

Georgina said, "We have a three-month-old spaniel puppy called Ariel who was abandoned by her owners due to some abnormalities - she has six legs.

"She's currently with one of our foster homes while we work with our local vets to schedule surgery to remove the extra legs which are fused to her spine. She also needs some corrective work to her pelvis as well.

"We're looking at a minimum of £5,000 for the surgery so this money means we'll be able to give her the chance in life she truly deserves.

"We pull together what we can from our charity shops and other local donations but this support from the players of People's Postcode Lottery will be instrumental in Ariel receiving the care she needs."

Other local charities to receive funding as a result of Saturday's win include:

  • Pembrokeshire Care Society - £40,000 Homelessness support charity providing practical support for those affected by poverty and/or homelessness.

  • SNAP Pembrokeshire - £30,000 SNAP is a charity for pre-school children (and families), with additional and complex needs, providing practical and creative support through the power of play.

  • Pembrokeshire Voluntary Transport - £30,000 The support charity helps people who have difficulties with transport due to age, disability, personal situation, or because they live in an isolated rural area with limited public transport.

  • Tir Dewi - £45,000 A support charity focussed on those in the farming sector. Providing mental health support, poverty advice and advocacy.

  • Sea Trust Wales - £30,000 Marine conservation charity, supporting monitoring and habitat restoration for marine life.

  • Belle's Story - £5,000 A local charity supporting young children with life limiting illness and raising awareness of organ donation.

  • Porthmawr Surf Lifesaving Club - £5,000 The club support safe recreational use of the sea, promote first aid and encourage the provision of facilities for young people to participate in beach activities.

All funding as a result of the Llandeloy win was awarded by Postcode Community Trust.

Today's prize is part of a draw promoted on behalf of Postcode Education Trust (opens in a new tab). Supported by our players, this trust delivers grant funding to organisations that provide education, particularly in emergency situations. Benefiting charities include AfriKids, War Child and Save the Children.

With 33% of the ticket price going to charities and good causes, players of People's Postcode Lottery have now raised more than £1.1 Billion for thousands of projects and groups. Our players are changing lives for the better.
