Fortune has smiled on a postcode in Keighley today. One lucky winner on Thorncliffe Road has scooped an incredible £50,000 cheque after his postcode, BD22 6BY, was drawn in Saturday's Street Prize.
Our winner Gary was delighted when he found out he'd won his superb prize. His cheque was revealed over video call by Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson.
Gary said, "What else could happen today that would be better than this? Nothing!"
Gary is a big music and travel fan, and plans to use his win to combine both of his passions.
He added, "It will be enjoyable to have a nice holiday when this is all over. I love The States. I want to go to Las Vegas and California. I'll end up at a big rock'n'roll event in Vegas they have every year. A week of rock'n'roll in Vegas! The car culture is great there too.
"I like to go away to different places, like Nepal. I just want to enjoy things!
"I'll probably get myself a new van for work too. It will be nice to get something comfortable I can actually enjoy driving. I'm still frugal though so it will be spent wisely!"
Caring For A Carer
Gary also plans to treat his daughter, who is currently busy working at a care home.
He said, "My daughter wants to take driving lessons, so I'll help her out. She was really excited for me, bless her. She works in a care home so she's busy working at the moment.
"I did say to her when this is all over that we will need to go out and celebrate. A nice meal out and a few bottles of wine will be very deserved."
When asked to sum up how he was feeling, Gary said, "I'm happy, simply happy. Wooohooo!"
He joked, "I was hoping you wouldn't ring me up if it wasn't worth my while. It definitely was!"
People's Postcode Lottery costs £10 a month to play and there are guaranteed winners every day. April's draws will see players in one postcode win £50,000 per ticket every Saturday and Sunday.
Danyl Johnson said, "A big congratulations to Gary! It was great to virtually meet him and reveal his cheque to him. It sounds like he has a lot of exciting plans to make, I might see if I can go with him!"
