It's an exciting start to the week for five Haywards Heath neighbours after they scooped whopping £30,000 prizes. The windfall arrived when RH16 3LY was announced as the winner of today's #30KADAY Street Prize. There's nothing like a life-changing cheque to supercharge your Monday!
A Long Way
Health and Safety worker Sam was one of today's lucky winners. He found out how much he'd won over a video call with Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson. Sam exclaimed, "This is mental! Superb! I never thought I'd be in this position. This will go a long, long way."
Sam was at work when he got the video call and joked, "I'll need to wait until just before 5 o'clock to tell everyone or I'll have to buy a lot of beers!"
The win has come at a great time for Sam and his fiance, Kirsty, who unfortunately had to postpone their wedding due to COVID restrictions. Sam said, "Our wedding was meant to be in July this year but has been postponed until next year now, fingers crossed! It's all planned but there are still some things we need to sort out so the money will be very beneficial for that.
"It will also help go towards a honeymoon when we can go. I've always wanted to go to St Lucia, but she wants to do South America. We will have to see who wins that argument - probably her!
"We've been together for 13 years, so it's been awful timing with everything happening, but I'm just over the moon with this. It will really help us out."
When asked how Kirsty would react to the news, Sam said, "This will blow her socks off! We'll have a bottle of bubbly when we get home, I'm sure. It's a bit surreal."
Sam added, "Everybody needs a helping right now with everything going on so it's great knowing the money goes to good causes, too. We actually recently got a new dog from a charity. He's full of energy but needs surgery, so the winnings will help with that."
Danyl Johnson said, "It was lovely to virtually meet Sam and be the bearer of such good news. I hope he and Kirsty have the wedding of their dreams next year, and hopefully the win means they can add some extra special touches. A big congratulations to the other winners too!"
