Reddies For Redditch
03 February 2019 - B97 5AS - Redditch - £30,000
It's a super Sunday for four neighbours in Redditch as they are celebrating scooping £30,000 each.
The Feckenham Road residents netted the fabulous five figure sum when their lucky postcode, B97 5AS, was announced as the winner of Sunday's Street Prize.
Among the winners was retiree Peter who was quite shocked when the People's Postcode Lottery team came knocking on his door. Peter said, "It's not every day you get a surprise like this! I didn't believe it was real when I received the phone call, so I think it will take quite a while to sink in, but it's been a very nice afternoon indeed."
Golf fan Peter is also planning to put his winnings towards a holiday to one of his favourite golfing spots in Bridlington. He continued, "I love to go away and play golf with friends from my local club and have recently booked a trip, but I think I'll be booking a second one later in the year now. I'm sure it'll be the talk of the clubhouse when everyone finds out how much I've won.
"I'm going to make sure I use this money to enhance the enjoyment I get out of life. I've got a son and a grandson too, so I'm sure they'll benefit as well."
Handing over the cheque to Peter was People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Danyl Johnson. He said, "I couldn't be more thrilled for Peter and I hope our other winners in Redditch all take a leaf out of his book and use the windfall to enhance their life by taking the time to do something they love."
32% of the ticket price goes to charities. To date, players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised £382 Million for good causes across Great Britain and internationally. This prize was part of a draw promoted by WaterAid.
Mental Health Action Group Redditch is one of many good causes close to the winners that has benefited from player support. In 2018, the group was awarded £20,000 to deliver coaching, support, and arts activities for people experiencing mental health issues.
