Three neighbours in Wembley are celebrating after their postcode, HA0 4AL, was announced as the winner of today's #30KADAY Street Prize. In February's draws, our #30KADAY Street Prizes mean lucky winners will collect £30,000 cheques every single day.
One of our lucky winners, Evelyn, has lived at that postcode for over 50 years. She said, "I'm stunned! I'm so happy. I've never won anything in my life! I thought it might be £500 so I was really surprised. I'm just gobsmacked."
Evelyn is retired, but spent most of her life as a full-time mother and grandmother, before becoming a great-grandmother of four. She said, "I used to do little cleaning jobs here and there, but spent most of my time looking after my four children. I then became a grandmother to 11, so there was a lot to do! I have four great-grandkids, the youngest is one.
"I'll definitely treat all of my family. My granddaughter is getting married in Italy in July so it's come at a great time. I might go on holiday, too, but I'm not too sure where."
By playing People's Postcode Lottery, Evelyn is glad that she's helping to support charities. She added, "It does a lot of good and I tell everyone to do it for that reason. There are lots of charities supported which is great."
Our other winners weren't available to collect their cheques in person so their prize money will be paid directly into their bank accounts.
Street Prize Presenter Jeff Brazier was in Wembley to surprise our winner. He said, "It was lovely to meet Evelyn and hear about her family. With so many people to treat I hope she keeps a bit aside for herself! Congratulations to the winners we were unable to meet, too. I'm sure they'll be just as pleased as Evelyn with their prizes."
