Lucky Luton Scoops Street Prize
10 November 2018 - LU1 1ST - Luton - £30,000
Two lucky players from Luton are celebrating after winning Saturday's Street Prize.
Their postcode, LU1 1ST, has scooped one of the neighbours a thrilling £30,000. Our other winner, who plays with two tickets, has doubled their prize to a whopping £60,000!
Richard, an army veteran, was the lucky £60,000 winner. He said, "It still hasn't sunk in yet. I haven’t got a clue what I'm going to do with my winnings – I've never seen a cheque for this much money in my life!
"My girlfriend Ellen will definitely have a say in spending it! I’m sure we'll treat ourselves to a nice holiday somewhere exotic."
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Jeff Brazier handed the cheque to Richard. Jeff said, "It was a great day in Luton meeting Richard and presenting him with such a big cheque. Once he’s gotten over the shock I’m sure he’ll enjoy treating himself and Ellen to something nice!"
With People's Postcode Lottery, 32% of the ticket price goes to charities. To date, our players have raised more than £361 Million for good causes across Great Britain and internationally. This Street prize was part of a draw promoted by Postcode Care Trust.
One good cause close to our winners is Level Trust. The group was awarded £18,878 to provide gift cards to children living in poverty so they can purchase school uniforms and coats.
There were more delighted players elsewhere after their postcode was drawn in Sunday's Street Prize.
