£1 Million Prize

Baillieston Millionaire Street

16 March 2024 - G69 6DQ - Baillieston - £1 Million

A carer who was 'gutted' at missing out on a People's Postcode Lottery prize is now celebrating after her mum said she'll go halves with her.

Sharon never joined People's Postcode Lottery when her mum Sadie - who lives in the flat above her - signed up.

But after Sadie scooped a £200,000 Millionaire Street prize, the great-gran hugged her girl and vowed to split the winnings with her.

Best Mammy Ever

Widow Sadie, of Baillieston, Glasgow, said, "I'll half it with my daughter and sort the rest of the family out."

And overjoyed mum-of-one Sharon said, "I'm over the moon at mum winning. I can't thank her enough. She's the best wee mammy ever."

Sadie bagged her windfall with four other neighbours in Baillieston after G69 6DQ won our weekly £1 Million Millionaire Street prize today. Every ticket was worth £200,000.

Incredibly, this win is the second Scottish street to hit the Millionaire Street jackpot in a week. Last Saturday, budgie breeder Gerry landed a £407,032 cheque just 12 miles away in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire.

Mum-of-three Sadie, who has six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, said she's happy she can help Sharon - and the rest of her family.

She said, "I'm happy to share it with my daughter. I never ever thought I'd win. I've never had that amount of money in my life. I've never even had half as much as that.

"I'm too old to do anything for myself, so I'll mostly help out my family."

She added, "I've been to Devon a few times; I went there with my husband Jack. I could go back if I can get someone to go with me. I might also go and see my daughter who lives in Spain."

And Sadie joked about how long it would take for the money to drop into her bank account. She laughed, "The quicker the better, in case I die tomorrow!"

Sharon, who works for Glasgow City Council, danced around with excitement after her mum's cheque was revealed.

She whooped, "Woohoo! Here we go! This is brilliant... amazing. We'll split the cheque, but I'm gutted I never signed up. I don't know why I never did. Probably because Mum was playing, and I was doing other things. I should have, but I'll start now."

Sharon's now planning a house revamp - and a treat for her partner Paul, a blacksmith.

Sharon said, "I'll think of something to do with the money. Redecorate maybe, get a new bathroom. Paul just wants a special fish supper."

Knockin' At The Door

Several doors down, mum-of-two Caroline took a few moments to come to the door because her bell wasn't working.

Stunned Caroline then staggered back when People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Danyl Johnson unveiled her windfall - then couldn't stop leaping around and screaming.

Now she wants to use some of the cash to complete a course in British Sign Language.

The optical receptionist said, "Really? Wow! Oh my gosh! You should feel my heartbeat. The first thing I'm going to do is fix my doorbell!

"I'd like to complete the British Sign Language course. Years ago, I passed stage one of BSL. I was working for another opticians at the time and wanted to sign for customers to help them.

"There are nine stages to the course, and it is really, really intense. But I would love to help kids in schools or nursery who are struggling with signing or hearing loss."

Caroline wants to treat her family, too - Celtic-daft husband John, and daughters Lisa, an electrical engineer, and Katie, an engineering student.

She said, "This means the world to me. I'll be sorting the family out - my husband and two daughters.

"Lisa can get a wetsuit. My daughters are water babies, they love swimming and surfing and paddleboarding - anything to do with the water. And Katie will be getting driving lessons now. We could also maybe get hospitality for John at Celtic Park."

She added, "We'll take a family holiday to India to see John's cousin. Then there might be a nice holiday for John and me. I'd go back to Italy and go to a vineyard there."

Caring & Sharing

Caroline, who went wild in the street stopping traffic with her neighbours, told us how she first signed up to help good causes. She said, "I decided to help out all these charities. There are so many good causes."

Because of her and the other four winners, a local charity has benefited from the Millionaire Street prize pot. And it's one that could be close to carer Sharon's heart.

The Glasgow North East Carers Centre has been awarded £75,000 thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery and Postcode Community Trust (opens in a new tab).

The charity supports over 400 carers around the North East of Glasgow and provides a range of practical and emotional support to anyone in the community who cares for somebody.

Manager Jean McInaw said, "The news of the funding has been such a pleasant surprise to our team and will be vital in enabling us to continue and expand our support programme offerings."

The charity provides information, advice and financial support as well as personal development plans for carers.

One of the many initiatives run by the charity includes Wellness Packs, which sees the charity deliver food and wellness-boosting items to carers across the region who deserve some extra time for themselves.

Jean said, "We provide person-centred, trauma-informed and wellbeing-focussed advice and support to carers. A carer can be anyone who looks after a relative, friend or partner who cannot manage on their own."

She added, "It is likely we'll all be a carer at one point in our lives, so it is crucial we can be there for everyone and anyone at any given time."

Good Causes Everywhere

Today's prize is part of a draw promoted on behalf of Postcode Planet Trust (opens in a new tab). Supported by our players, this trust delivers grant funding to organisations that work to protect and promote our environment and wildlife. Benefiting charities include WWF-UK, Marine Conservation Society and The Wildlife Trusts.

With 33% of the ticket price going to charities and good causes, players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £1.2 Billion for thousands of deserving causes and projects across Great Britain and around the world. Our players are making a difference every day for a wide range of amazing organisations.
