It's a terrific Tuesday for two neighbours in Clydebank who are heading into the month of May with a cheque for £25,000 each! The players' postcode, G81 2DN, was the winner of our monthly BMW and £25,000 prize. And that means that one of the winners also gets to drive away a brand new BMW!
Staff nurse and father-of-two Martin was over the moon to discover how much he had won. He said, "I just can't believe this – I never thought something like this would happen to me! My wife, Elaine, is celebrating her 50th birthday this year so I think we'll book a trip to Las Vegas to mark the occasion and party in style! We've had a hard time as a family recently, as Elaine's granny passed away last month, so it's just really nice to get some good news."
And if the cash wasn't enough, Martin got another surprise when he was handed the keys to a brand new BMW. "This is just the cherry on top of the cake. I'm completely gobsmacked!"
Winner Claire couldn't believe her eyes when she saw her cheque. She said, "Oh my god – no way! I'm getting married this year so this has come at a great time and will definitely help us out. It feels fantastic to be a winner!"
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Judie McCourt congratulated the winners, "I've had a brilliant time in Clydebank presenting Martin and Claire with their prizes today and I'm delighted for them both. Sign up to play with your postcode."
Players aren't the only ones who benefit from People's Postcode Lottery, as 32% of the ticket price goes to charities. To date, £291 Million has been raised by players for good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
One local charity that has been supported by players is Glasgow Fever Basketball Club. The group was awarded £18,500 last year to deliver a number of different basketball programmes, including female-only and walking basketball, to give a wider range of local residents the opportunity to participate in the sport.
