Millions Lands In Mablethorpe
A total of 591 people in Mablethorpe are celebrating after their postcode sector, LN12 1, won them a share of a £7.9 Million prize in our October Postcode Millions draw.
Thirteen neighbours shared over £3.9 Million when we revealed LN12 1RQ as the full winning postcode. Eleven of the winners each pocketed a cheque for £263,333, and the remaining two doubled their prizes to a whopping £526,666 as they were each playing with two tickets.
Cyril, who plays with two tickets, is officially a half-a-millionaire after winning a whopping £526,666. The father-of-two found out about his win with his wife Maria, who read out loud what was written on his cheque.
Cyril said, "It's a miracle. I was just flabbergasted, absolutely flabbergasted, I just couldn't believe the amount. It really is once-in-a-lifetime stuff."
This windfall means the couple, who got married last year, can go on their dream honeymoon. Cyril said, "We've always wanted to go to Egypt together. So, we can now do that and have the honeymoon we never went on."
When asked what he'd spend the money on, Cyril said, "We can sort the kids out, which is a great feeling."
A Great Christmas
Beverley, a great-grandmother of fourteen, and her husband Michael both scooped cheques for £263,333 each.
Beverley cried out in disbelief when their cheques were revealed while a few of her grandkids watched on, "Oh my God! Look! Oh, kids, we'll have a good old Christmas now, and many Christmases to come.
Beverley, a nurse for over 30 years, said, "Never in my life did I think that this would happen to us. I'd love to see my bank manager's face when that goes in my bank account.
"I don't think I've ever made that much money in my whole life, and I've worked from when I was 15 until I retired."
Beverley added, "We can really help out our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. It'll be a Christmas to remember.
"We've always talked about buying a bungalow - we can actually do that now."
Michael, who worked as a long-distance lorry driver, added, "We gave up the mobility car that we had last year, and Beverley needs a special car to get in and out of. We could now buy a Citroen Berlingo to make our life easier when getting about locally."
Over The Moon
Neighbour Samantha was ecstatic with her £263,333 win. She received the good news between working back-to-back nightshifts at a local care home.
Samantha, who has lived on the street for over 40 years, said, "It's fantastic, I'm over the moon."
The mum-of-two was joined by her husband Paul when our Postcode Lottery team turned up on her doorstep. Samantha said, "We've not even given it a thought about what we could buy because we've never thought about winning this sort of money - never in our wildest dreams really.
"There will be something for our children and my first buy will be to replace our 20-year-old car with a new one."
Paul, who plays in a local folk band, has his eye on a new banjo. Putting his Punch and Judy puppeteer hat on, he added, "That's the way to do it!"
Husband and wife Gordon and Lynda said they could "jump over the moon" after finding out they'd each won a cheque for £263,333.
Lynda said, "We're just fantastically happy with this at our age, it's lovely to have this win behind you."
The grandparents said that along with helping their family they'd like to give some of their winnings to local charities. Lynda explained, "It gives us an opportunity to share it with our local charities, too, such as the RNLI, Cancer and Air Ambulance charities and Dogs Home.
"We like to help people out and charities are important in our small community in Mablethorpe."
Still In Shock
Bonita also won £526,666 as she played with two tickets. She found out about her windfall alongside her husband, Peter.
Peter said, "One day you've just got your pension, the next day you've got over half a million. It's quite something, we're still in shock."
Charities Win Too
Neighbours Gordon, Patricia, and Leonard were also "counting their lucky stars" as they each netted a £263,333 cheque.
Leonard said, "I'm stunned. I signed up to maybe win but mostly to help charities - it's astronomical.
"It's a brilliant community and I thank my lucky stars I've won - I feel elated."
The remaining residents in the sector received cheques ranging from £6,067 to £24,268, depending on how many tickets they play with.
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Matt Johnson congratulated all our winners. He said, "It's my absolute pleasure to share this incredible news with lots of lucky winners this weekend.
