A sensational six neighbours from Sittingbourne have struck it rich thanks to playing People's Postcode Lottery. Five of the winners took home £30,000 each with the sixth netting a super £60,000 because they play with two tickets. Their windfall comes after their postcode, ME10 1UL, was drawn in today's #30KADAY Street Prize.
A Little Treat
One of our lucky winners, Ben, was beside himself with joy when he received the good news. He learned of his win during a video call with Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson. On seeing his lovely £30,000 cheque he exclaimed, "No way, I can't believe it! Are you serious? I'm over the moon, that is brilliant."
As the news sank in Ben had a few ideas on how he'd spend his winnings. He said, "That's brilliant, I'm saving for a house deposit so that will massively, massively help.
"I suppose I could get a new car - my car is getting quite old now. Give myself a little treat! I might go take myself to a showroom today and have a look at a few cars. I had been looking a few Audis recently, so I might get one of them."
Ben, who works as a cabin crew member for an airline, moved away from the winning street at the end of last year, but opted to keep playing with his old postcode. He added, "I just had a feeling to keep playing with the old one. I thought, 'I'm not changing it!'"
He originally started playing after his mum told him about the lottery and joked that he'd need to get something for her as a thank you. He said, "I'll need to treat my mum as well, she was one who told be about doing it. What do I buy her? Flowers and chocolates won't cut it!"
Danyl Johnson sent his best wishes to all the winners. He said, "A massive congratulations to all of our winners in Sittingbourne, what an amazing start to the weekend! I'm sure they'll be celebrating tonight and I hope they get themselves some special treats with their winnings."
