The final week of our #30KADAY Street Prize extravaganza has landed two lucky Lewisham neighbours a superb £30,000 each.
The Slaithwaite Road winners have scooped the prize as their postcode, SE13 6DB, has won Thursday's Street Prize.
One of our winners, Bernard, was thrilled to receive a call saying our team were visiting to deliver his cheque. He said, "When I got a call to say Jeff and the team were coming to see me, I was thrilled.
"Finding out I won £30,000 was amazing! My girlfriend Kim is going through treatment for breast cancer so I'm now able to plan a holiday in the sunshine. I'm looking into going back home to Jamaica, or South Africa, as we both deserve a little treat and rest."
A Holiday In The Sunshine
"My dad died of cancer 20 years ago so it's something that has affected, and still does affect, people I know. With the rest of the prize money, I want to do something good by organising a fundraiser. I'm looking into booking out a local hall and putting on a party to raise funds for cancer research on behalf of my family's name.
"Winning People's Postcode Lottery is not only benefiting me and allowing me to give back in my own way, but it's also great for local causes. I think it's great seeing where the goodwill is going and it's one of the reasons I'm going to keep on playing."
A second neighbour also scooped a £30,000 cash prize. They were not available to receive their cheque in person, but their prize money will be paid into their bank account.
Street Prize Presenter Jeff Brazier was in Lewisham to deliver Bernard his cheque. He said, "I had an amazing day meeting Bernard and listening to how he's now planning a holiday in the sun for him and his partner Kim. His plans to raise money for cancer research using his prize is also amazing. Seeing the difference winning can make to lives is such an exciting part of the job and I wish Bernard and Kim the best time away!"
