Party In Newport
Nine Newport residents received a special delivery when our Street Prize team knocked on their doors to present them with golden envelopes. The windfall came for the neighbours after their postcode, NP20 6PL, was drawn as a winner of today's £30,000 Street Prize.
Eight of our winners received cheques for £30,000, while a ninth scooped £90,000 because they were playing with three tickets.
Every day throughout our June draws one postcode will be announced as a £30,000 prize winner. All the players in that postcode will win £30,000 for every ticket they play with.
Among our winners was Dianna, who planned to use her prize money to pay for an overdue honeymoon. She said, "We've never been on a honeymoon so I'm going to take my husband on one. Somewhere warm with a beach.
"Thirteen years we've been married, and we never got round to it!"
Dianna will celebrate her win with champagne - with a bottle that's been waiting for a special occasion. She said, "I've got my wedding champagne. It's still in the gift wrapping! We got it for our wedding as a gift and we never had an opportunity to open it, so it's in the fridge."
The mum-of-three was overjoyed with her £30,000 cheque and said, "It means the absolute world. I can't tell you enough how much that money is going to do my family a world of good."
Dianna planned to treat her three boys with the winnings and may get a treat for herself as well. She said, "I might go on a spa day, just to compose myself and calm down!"
She added that she was thrilled to hear about her neighbours winning and said, "I think the fact that I'm sharing with my lovely neighbours, because we are like a family here, I'm chuffed to bits for everybody."
Shocked Is The Word
Rebecca was lost for words after she and her partner Richard found out they'd won £30,000. When asked how she felt, she said, "I don't even know, I'm shocked. Shocked is the word!"
The couple are currently getting work done on their home. Richard said, "We were saving to get work done on our house and this has given us a head start, which is amazing."
The pair, who are both civil servants, were married in 2020 and like their neighbour Dianna they had an overdue trip in mind. While laughing Richard said, "We still haven't had our honeymoon, so we could do that!"
Another lucky winner was Andrew, who was left stunned with his £30,000 cheque. He said, "It'll definitely make a difference. It will be life-changing to be honest."
The maintenance technician plans to treat his wife, Val, as they celebrate a special milestone later this year. He said, "We'll be forty years married this year. We were planning on going on a cruise, but we didn't think we'd be able to go. Hopefully we'll start looking at the brochures now!"
The couple have lived on the street for over 35 years and Andrew said he'd be celebrating with his friends and family. He said, "I imagine what we'll do is have a little party. I'll organise a club for the evening and get everyone together, hopefully, we'll do that.
"We'll probably open a bottle of champagne!"
Tracey also netted £30,000. After finding out how much she and her partner Christopher had won, she described her shock and said, "I had butterflies in my stomach, it was such a strange feeling!
"I'm just overwhelmed. I can't really describe it, it's surreal."
With her two children and four grandchildren in mind, Tracey plans to use her winnings to treat her family to an overseas trip. She said, "A big holiday with everybody, my little gang here and my grandchildren. I fancy taking the little ones to Florida or something like that."
Tracey, who has worked as a support worker for 25 years, said the family would be celebrating the good news together. She said, "I might open a bottle of champagne in a minute! But we'll organise something in the next couple of days.
"I'm a party person so there's definitely going to be a party!"
Pearl was another winner to receive a £30,000 cheque. She was joined by her husband Ken when she received the good news. After the shock had passed, Ken said, "It's a huge amount of money for us and it will go a long way." Pearl added, "I'm just ecstatic, I can't wait to tell my kids."
Pearl described the win as amazing and that it would allow the couple to complete renovations on their home. They also had a special treat in mind. Ken said, "We'll spoil ourselves with a nice holiday." When asked where, Pearl was quick to say, "Mauritius!"
The couple also plan to celebrate. Pearl said, "We've just had a Jubilee party, and this will mean the celebrations go on!
"It was our wedding anniversary yesterday, so we'll go out for a big meal to celebrate."
Neighbour Paul and his wife Jane plan to use their £30,000 windfall to help pay for their son's wedding later this year. Jane said, "We've got a wedding in September so some of the money will go towards that. There's just a few extras now that maybe we couldn't have afforded, but now we will."
When asked if he might treat himself, Paul suggested a new pair of golf clubs might be on the cards. Jane had a few ideas as well. She said, "A new kitchen, I need a new one. And maybe a cruise!"
The couple, who have lived in the winning postcode for over 20 years, were stunned by their win. Paul added, "It's absolutely amazing. It means so much to us."
Street Prize Presenter Matt Johnson was in Newport to meet today's winners. He said, "I couldn't be more pleased for all of our Newport winners. What a fantastic way to start their weekend.
"It sounds like they've already got great ideas for the winnings with some overdue honeymoons and party celebrations already being planned. I hope they have a great time with their winnings and enjoy treating themselves and their loved ones."
