A trio of Barking players are starting 2021 on a high, after picking up £50,000 prizes in our #50KADAY extravaganza. Two of the neighbours scooped £50,000 each. The third doubled their win to £100,000, thanks to playing with two tickets.
Postcode IG11 9XQ was announced as today's £50,000 Street Prize winner. Farook found out he'd won £100,000 in a video call with Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson.
When he saw his cheque, Farook was staggered. He said, "Woah! No way! I don't know what to say. My mind is so blank right now. I can't even put my sentences together. It's making me sweat!"
Farook plans to use the win to treat his wife, 3-year-old daughter, and 11-month-old son.
He said, "I'll probably buy my wife an expensive handbag - Hermès? How expensive are they?! I also want to buy myself a nice car, and the kids lots of nice presents! We had a holiday planned for February to go to Egypt, but we don't know if we'll be able to go. If we can go, we'll have a big budget now!"
Wide Awake After Win
Farook works in security. He had just returned home from a 12-hour nightshift when he received the amazing news. Farook said, "I was supposed to be sleeping, I don't think I'll get any sleep now! It hasn't even hit me yet. My cheeks are hurting from smiling!"
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Danyl Johnson said, "A big congratulations to Farook and our other winners in Barking. Hopefully the win lifts their spirits and helps get 2021 off to a good start for them."
