Sheffield Strikes It Rich
A retired dinner lady is among three people in Sheffield celebrating after scooping today's £30,000 Street Prize. Jackie landed the win alongside two of her neighbours when their postcode, S2 1WR, was announced as a winner.
Jackie scooped £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets. The grandmother-of-nine said, "This means everything, it's life-changing.
"It'll change my life, but it won't change me - I'll still be the same Jackie I've always been."
Jackie has a few plans on how she'll spend the windfall. She said, "I'll give my family a treat, they've been good to us. I've four daughters and nine grandkids from 13 to two, so they'll get a bit. Hopefully a lovely holiday, too. I was thinking Spain but with the amount I've just received it might be a cruise!"
Jackie's husband David, who retired from his job as a supermarket trolley collector 10 years ago, joined her as she received the good news. David said, "I've never had something like that in my hands before.
"It means a hell of a lot. I don't think we'll know what it means until we get back in the house and sit down and it all starts to sink in."
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Judie McCourt was in Sheffield to meet our winners. Judie said, "It was a pleasure to surprise Jackie with a cheque for £60,000. I'm sure she and David will have an absolutely fantastic time spending their prize.
"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. One charity close to our winners is Sheffield Young Carers Project. Earlier this year it received £24,312 to support young carers across the area.
"Neighbours win and charities win. It's the ultimate win-win situation!"
