Street Prize

Elated In Atherton

23 February 2023 - M46 0SN - Atherton - £30,000 + £5,000 Holiday

Two Atherton neighbours are celebrating today thanks to their M46 0SN postcode. One landed cheques for £30,000 and a £5,000 holiday. Another doubled their winnings to £60,000 and a £10,000 holiday prize because they were playing with two tickets.

Never Expected To Win

£35,000 winner Andrew couldn't believe his luck after receiving a knock at the door from People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Danyl Johnson. He exclaimed, "It's fantastic! I'm feeling a bit bewildered, you don't ever expect to win."

Andrew was joined by his wife Gillian when his cheques were revealed. She said, "We're more free to enjoy life. This money is going to make life a whole lot easier.

"With the cost-of-living crisis at the minute, this just makes things so much easier because obviously having children you want to provide and do as much as you can. Our daughter Emily can get the extra dance lessons that she's been asking for, and we can help our other two daughters with driving lessons.

"Andy works so hard, he really does. He's out first thing in the morning and gets back really late at night."

The pair also have their sights set on a family holiday. Andrew said, "We can go on holiday somewhere hot, probably Kos in Greece with all the kids." Gillian added, "We love Kos, and it will be amazing to squeeze it in before the kids get too old."

Andrew acknowledged that he has his brother-in-law to thank for his lucky win. He said, "My brother-in-law started the lottery a few years ago and told us to play it because he won £1,000. I'm glad we did because we've won a jackpot, so we'll need to give him a call."

The couple are planning to celebrate the win with their three daughters. Gillian said gleefully, "We'll go out and celebrate - it might be a bottomless brunch!"

People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Danyl Johnson said, "Congratulations to Andrew and his neighbour in Atherton who have scooped whopping prizes as part of our daily February draws.

"I hope they both enjoy celebrating tonight, spending the cash and have a great time on holiday."
