Payout For Pershore
03 November 2018 - WR10 3AQ - Pershore - £3 Million
A lucky postcode sector, WR10 3, in Pershore is celebrating after 241 players shared an amazing £3 Million in October's Postcode Millions prize.
The full winning postcode, WR10 3AQ, won three neighbours £321,170 each and the remaining 238 players took home prizes ranging from £7,923 to £23,769.
Our winner Joy was one of the lucky ones to collect an incredible £321,170. She was initially given a cheque for £7,923, but that was ripped up when she received the top prize!
Joy said, "I'm in complete shock. This will give me an opportunity to get things that I couldn't have dreamed of before.
"The idea of cutting down at work for me and my husband now that we're getting on a bit is the main thing now. We can go on a nice holiday and have a better quality of life.
"My husband was a bit sceptical about it all and he didn't come with me. I texted him when I got the £7,923 and then when I got the big amount, I rang him and told him to sit down."
Two other winners also received the same amount as Joy, but were not available to receive their cheques. Their winnings will be paid directly into their bank accounts.
Another winner, Victoria, was thrilled to win as it means she can focus on helping her daughter Antonia, who has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
She said, "This means a huge amount and it's a real help. This has set us well on the way to achieving our goal of raising more money for Antonia. The community has come together to help Antonia to save her life.
"I'm so pleased that other people in our community have won today. I signed up to play six years ago before Antonia got ill and the reason was because of all the charities that benefit from it. Just being here today has been amazing and really emotional."
Players from postcode sector WR10 3 attended a cheque presentation at the National Trust's Croome Court in Worcester.
At the venue, People's Postcode Lottery Presenters Matt Johnson and Judie McCourt handed out golden envelopes to some of our lucky winners.
Judie said, "What a wonderful crowd in Pershore. Not only did we celebrate the winning players, but we celebrated the amount raised for charities - £350 Million to date. On behalf of all the good causes supported by each and every player, we really thank you."
32% of the ticket price goes to charity. So far, People's Postcode Lottery players have raised an incredible £350 Million for charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
A number of local projects have received support from players of People's Postcode Lottery, including Avon Navigation Trust. The group received £3,500 this year, transforming Pershore Weir Island into a wildlife community haven to attract both residents and tourists.
