A trio of neighbours from Manchester are celebrating after their postcode, M40 7AE, has been revealed as a Sunday Street Prize winner. The Kenwyn Street residents scooped £30,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.
On Top Of The World
Winner Tony was surrounded by cheering neighbours when he was presented with his cheque. The street erupted when they found out how much he had won.
Tony said, "This means the world to a working man like me. I'm just taken aback. I've lived here since 1987 and the community is so close. Everyone helps each other out and it's lovely to see everyone so happy for me. There will definitely be a party on the street soon!"
Tony added, "I'm dumbstruck. I can think about taking the family away to Florida now - it's actually do-able. I feel like I'm on top of the world!"
Joy Of Giving Back
32% of the People's Postcode Lottery ticket price goes to charities and good causes. Thanks to our players, over £462 Million has been raised for deserving organisations around the world. More than 6,500 projects have been helped by player funding so far. Tony said, "I love that money goes towards good causes. It's great to win but to know you're giving back to charity too."
Two more neighbours on Kenwyn Street won £30,000 cash prizes. They weren't available in person to pick up their cheques, but their prize money will be paid directly into their bank accounts.
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Jeff Brazier handed Tony his cheque. Jeff said, "It was a pleasure to meet Tony today and I'm so pleased for him. There was a real buzz on the street, and everyone was thrilled when they found out how much he had won. I'm sure everyone will have fun celebrating together and I hope all of the winners treat themselves with their prize money."
Today's prize is part of a draw promoted by charity Depaul UK. Our players are helping Depaul UK tackle the immediate and long-term effects of homelessness and provide safe and stable futures for the young people which society leaves behind.
Local charities have also been supported by our players. These include CEDE Foundation, which was awarded £10,000 last year to help unemployed people gain entrepreneurial and marketing skills.
