BMW For Blaenau Ffestiniog
December 5th, 2017
Four neighbours in Blaenau Ffestiniog got a big surprise when £25,000 prizes landed in their street.
The cash windfall was all thanks to their lucky postcode, LL41 4AF, which was drawn as the winner of this month's BMW and £25,000 prize.
Eric was joined by his wife Sue when he was presented with his cheque. He said, "£25,000 from a knock on the door – I can't believe it! I saw an advert and thought I might as well give it a try, since it's for charity. Charities get a lot, and now I've got a lot too!
"My sister and daughter both live on the street too but don't play - I bet they'll be signing up now!"
The three other Manod Road winners weren't at home to receive their cheques, but their winnings will be transferred directly into their bank accounts. One of the lucky winners also landed the keys to a brand new BMW.
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Matt Johnson said, "What a treat to visit beautiful North Wales with some lovely big cheques. It was fantastic to meet Eric and Sue today, and £25,000 for all of the winners just before Christmas – Nadolig Llawen a llongyfarchiadau!"
Players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £246 Million to date for good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
A nearby cause that has received support from players is Snowdonia National Park Authority. The group was awarded £1,800 last year to run a beekeeping course.
