Street Prize

Wahey Wakefield

16 July 2023 - WF1 2AJ - Wakefield - £30,000

It's a wonderful weekend in Wakefield. Two neighbours picked up whopping £30,000 cheques after their postcode, WF1 2AJ, got lucky today. One of the players, Jo, doubled her prize to £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets. What a way to supercharge your Sunday!

Dream Italian Home

Jo, who works in a role that encourages and supports people to get into cycling, plans to put the cash towards renovating an old Italian property. She said, "We've saved up for over ten years to buy a derelict building in Sicily, in the town where my husband was born.

"We go over twice every year to renovate it. But we can only renovate it once we've worked over here and saved some more money. Then we go over there and spend the money on it that we've saved.

"So £60,000 will go a long, long way to helping us get the dream derelict house finished."

Street Prize Presenter Matt Johnson brought joy to Wakefield. Matt said, "It was a pleasure to surprise Jo with a cheque for £60,000. I'm sure she and her neighbour will have an absolutely fantastic time spending their prizes.

"Local charities have something to celebrate too, thanks to People's Postcode Lottery players. They have raised more than £1.1 Billion for charities and thousands of local good causes. Neighbours win and charities win. It's the ultimate win-win situation!"

Today's prize is part of a draw promoted on behalf of Postcode Global Trust (opens in a new tab). Supported by our players, this trust delivers grant funding to organisations who are working to save lives and improve health care systems.
