A sensational six people in West Hallam have got their Wednesday off to a super start. The lucky players, who play with postcode DE7 6HP, each received a £30,000 cheque after winning today's Street Prize.
In February's draws, our #30KADAY Street Prizes mean lucky winners will collect £30,000 cheques every single day.
A Little Bit Speechless
Glyn and his wife Gaye each play with a ticket so they scooped a total of £60,000! Glyn, who works in the railway industry, was on a break when he found out he'd won during a video call with Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt.
On seeing his cheque, Glyn exclaimed, "That's incredible. What can I say? I'm a little bit speechless! Gaye plays too which makes it even nicer. She's in the travel industry and was made redundant just before Christmas so this has come at a great time."
Glyn and Gaye recently moved house and won with their old postcode. Glyn said, "We moved in November and I didn't want to cancel. I can see that was with good reason now!
"We're planning lots of things for our new house including an extension, so the money will go towards that. We're both nearing retirement age too. This means we've got a little nest egg now.
"We're not generally very lucky, never in a million years did I expect this to happen."
As well as home improvements, the pair would love to go on the trip of a lifetime. Gaye said, "If we can then we'd love to get to New Zealand and the South Pacific. It's something we've always talked about.
"I didn't dare to believe that this would ever happen, you always hope the lottery will come your way but never in my wildest dreams did I think this would happen."
Sharing The Joy
David, who works as a general manager at distribution centre, also scooped a £30,000 prize. When his cheque was revealed, David was taken aback and said, "Wow, that's great, really great. When you get the call you just don't know what to expect but that's a wonderful amount of money. My heart is beating quite fast at the moment, I must admit!
"My wife Gill has been talking about some home improvements so I can see where a lot of it is going to go already. We've got two children and our granddaughter will be two in June so I want to share this out amongst them as well."
However, David also plans to treat himself. He said, "I enjoy my sports and my travelling so combining the two would be great at some point. I'd also love to see England play at Twickenham, I'm more of a football fan but I do have a passion for English rugby so it would be great to see them play."
David was pleased to have won alongside so many of his neighbours. He added, "There's a wonderful community here in West Hallam so it's wonderful we can all share this. It's great to know there's others enjoying the same feeling I'm currently enjoying."
After the calls Judie McCourt said, "It was fantastic to deliver some good news to Glyn, Gaye and David and hear their plans for their winnings. A big congratulations to them and all our other lucky winners in West Hallam!"
