09 July 2017 - CB9 9NH - Haverhill - £30,000
Thrills And Spills In Haverhill
July 9th, 2017
Three neighbours are celebrating this week after winning big when their postcode, CB9 9NH, was drawn as Sunday's Street Prize winner. Each player in the postcode scooped £30,000 per ticket.
Kerry Meek was one of the lucky winners. "The first thing I'm going to buy myself is a new laptop, which I really need. My partner Bernie wants to landscape the garden, and it's my daughter's 21st birthday coming up, so I'll be able to get her a special present.
"The fact that money from the ticket goes to charity is the main reason I signed up. I've done a lot of fundraising ever since I was in school, so it's something that I care a lot about."
There was one other £30,000 winner and one £60,000 winner who were not available to receive their cheques, but their winnings will be deposited directly into their bank accounts.
Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson said, "I had a fantastic day meeting Kerry and surprising her with her cheque. I hope she enjoys spending her winnings – and of course her two neighbours who have also won too."
A minimum of 30% of the ticket price goes to charity. To date, players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £212 Million for over 2,800 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
A local cause which has received support from players is School of Hard Knocks, which was awarded £93,944 for a project to improve behaviour and attainment in school through sports coaching.
There was also a happy player in Brithdir, as LL40 2SB was drawn as the winner of Saturday's Street Prize.
