Huzzah For Hoxton
10 August 2019 - N1 7HU - Hoxton - £30,000
Two neighbours in Hoxton are in the money this week after their postcode, N1 7HU, was drawn as a winner in Saturday's Street Prize.
Artist Tina was one of our winners - she scooped an amazing £30,000 prize!
Tina said, "The money will enable me to promote myself and my artwork. I've never had the money to do it properly before and it would be great to finally do that.
"I'm also going to visit family and friends I wouldn't have been able to visit otherwise, and I can be generous to them for a change!"
Visiting Family and Friends
Tina signed up to play because of the money that goes to charity. She added, "I think the charity side is the most important thing. It doesn't matter if you don't win, because it goes to a good cause."
Tina's neighbour also won a superb prize of £60,000, thanks to playing with two tickets. They were not available to receive their cheque in person, but their prize money will be paid into their bank account.
People's Postcode Lottery Street Prize Presenter Jeff Brazier unveiled Tina's cheque. He said, "Massive congratulations to Tina and her neighbour on their win! It was fantastic to meet Tina and hear all about how the money will help her with her work."
Good Causes Across Great Britain
At People's Postcode Lottery, 32% of the ticket price goes directly to charities, and our wonderful players have raised more than £462 Million to date for good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
Today's prize is part of a draw promoted by Theirworld, which has received over £2.9 Million thanks to player support. This money has helped the charity in the push to educate millions of children who are out of school and not learning and give them a brighter future.
Last year, People's Postcode Trust awarded £19,000 to local charity CHOICE in Hackney, to help them provide high-quality services to disabled adults in volunteering, employment, advocacy, support planning and advice.
One lucky player in another area picked up their own whopping cheque after winning Sunday's Street Prize.
