Winning £25,000 each with their lucky postcode was a real coup for two neighbours from Coupe Drive in Stoke-on-Trent! Their postcode, ST3 5HR was drawn as a winner in this weekend's Saturday Street Prize.

Nicholas Millard says the win couldn't have come at a better time."I'll be celebrating my 60th birthday in the next couple of weeks, so my family will be able to have an extra special party now."​

"I didn't expect to win £25,000 - it's fantastic," he said. "At my age, retirement isn't too far away, so this will top up my pension pot.

"My wife Pamela had no idea that I played People's Postcode Lottery, so it was a nice surprise for her. I signed up two years ago, and I've won £10 twice before, but it's definitely third time lucky with this big win!"

Mary Goodwin also received a cheque for £25,000 from People's Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt.

She said, "I've lived on Coupe Drive for 38 years, and I've played People's Postcode Lottery for about a year. Winning £25,000 was unimaginable. I couldn't believe it when I saw the three noughts on the cheque.

"I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all the money. I've got a son and daughter and two grandchildren who I'll be able to help out. My husband needs a new phone, and I've also got two sausage dogs, Jasper and Max, who might get treated to a new blanket."

Players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised over £113 Million to date for good causes across Great Britain and internationally. A player supported charity near ST3 5HR is UpRising in Stoke-on-Trent, which received £19,200 in 2015.
