Seven neighbours from Horrabridge won big this week when their postcode, PL20 7SY, was drawn as our Sunday Street Prize winner. The Phoenix Close residents picked up an incredible £30,000 each, with a total of £210,000 being won by players in the lucky street.
Winner Lyn was over the moon with her cheque. She said, "Our great-grandson has just been born a few weeks ago in Australia, so we will be booking flights to meet him and see family there as soon as the money lands in the bank!
"I originally signed up because I missed out on the big Postcode Millions prize while I was living at my old address. I didn't want to miss out again so it's fantastic that I have now won!"
Lyn's sister-in-law, Lynda, who lives just across the road, was also a winner! Lynda said, "This is just going to be such a help. I live on my pension, so this is going to make things much more comfortable for me. I'm going to take my daughter for a trip to New York too – we've always wanted to go."
Jack was joined by his wife Sandra when he was surprised with their £30,000 cheque. They are already planning to visit family in South Africa, and are delighted they'll be able to help out their three children and eight grandchildren, who all live locally.
Ian was amongst those celebrating, and was delighted to have won with his neighbours in their close-knit community.
People's Postcode Lottery Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson delivered the amazing cheques. Danyl said, "I'm absolutely delighted for all of the winners and hope they enjoy spending their prizes. It's fantastic to see so many neighbours winning together – it's what People’s Postcode Lottery is all about."
