Bonanza In Blackrod
Our Street Prizes are bringing smiles to players in lucky postcodes every day in September's draws. Now in the third week of our #30KADAY extravaganza, we're loving the chance to deliver golden envelopes to streets across the country. Today's prize is headed to postcode BL6 5BU in Blackrod. Eight neighbours have each scooped a super £30,000 cheque for every ticket they play with.
Daniel was one of our lucky winners, and is already looking forward to spending his prize on a new car. He said, "When the cheque was being pulled out the envelope, I couldn't believe how many zeros there were! I've never won anything in my life and I've only been playing for about a year. I can buy whatever I want now. My first purchase though has got to be a new car. Things keep going wrong with it so I really want to treat myself to a new one. I will also treat my sister to something nice.
"The good thing about playing for People's Postcode Lottery is that people, just like me, are winning all the time. It's a win win. Charities win and people win. I'm definitely going to keep playing as I've got as much chance of winning again as I did before, so fingers crossed for another knock at the door in the future!"
As our other seven winners weren't available to collect their cheques in person, their prize money will be paid directly into their bank accounts.
Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt was in Blackrod to meet Daniel. She said, "It was a pleasure to meet Daniel today and hand over his cheque. His eyes lit up when he saw how much he had won. It's great to hear he can now buy himself a new set of wheels and something nice for his sister. I hope each of the eight winners enjoy spending their prize money!"
