Funds For Folkestone
There's no Monday blues for nine lucky Folkestone players whose postcode has won as part of our #30KADAY Street Prize extravaganza.
The St Martins Road neighbours discovered that CT20 3LB has won Monday's Street Prize.
One winner, Marion, plays with two tickets and collected a staggering £60,000. She said, "I am thrilled to bits to have won £60,000 on People's Postcode Lottery. I can't actually believe it! I started playing three years ago when I stopped smoking, so this is karma for quitting! It's also grand to know quite a bit of my money has gone to charity."
Thrilled To Bits
Marion continued, "I'm going to take one of my friends on a cruise, probably around the Caribbean where it's nice and sunny. Other than that I have no idea what I'll spend the money on!"
Toni was another delighted winner, picking up an amazing £30,000. Toni said, "I've never won anything ever in my life - and I try a lot! I'm just amazed.
"I did not expect to win £30,000! I signed up because it's great to know a lot of the money goes to charities and it's even better to know people like us can win.
"We've been saving up for a trip to Jamaica next year for my 60th birthday so we're now able to pay this off next month thanks to the prize. Anyone thinking of playing should just do it! You really can win!"
Another lucky Folkestone resident, Stephanie, was also stunned to scoop £30,000. She said, "Winning feels amazing. This money is going to go towards a caravan or towards some travel abroad. It's a real win-win as it's amazing knowing charities are being helped, and also that we've won and can now treat ourselves."
Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt was in Folkestone to hand over cheques. She said, "What a fantastic atmosphere there's been here in Folkestone. Having nine neighbours win has created such a buzz, there's even talks of them all getting together to have a party to celebrate. It's lovely to present the prizes and hear from all the winners on their plans to spend the £30,000, and in Marion's case, £60,000! I wish them all them best and hope they have fun spending their money."
