Five neighbours playing with postcode SA18 2EW in Ammanford are in for a weekend of celebrations, despite the miserable weather, after winning today's Street Prize. Four of the Carmarthenshire residents scooped £30,000 each, with the fifth doubling their prize to £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets.
A Big Adventure
Pam was one of our lucky £30,000 winners. She said, "I'm totally shocked! It's a life-changing experience. Today I've had a very big adventure which I'm very happy about."
As well as booking a holiday to escape the wet weather, Pam has a son who she plans to treat with the prize money. She said, "My son is over the moon, he wants to spend it on all sorts of stuff. He wants to change his bedroom and he also wants to go abroad, which is fine by me as I want to go on holiday as well! I'd love to go to the Fiji Islands for a few weeks. I'd also love to hire a helicopter and fly over the Grand Canyon."
Pam was delighted to find out that some of her neighbours won, too, and plans on celebrating with her friends. She said, "I'm going to the local pub over the road with a couple of mates tonight. I'm going to absorb the atmosphere and soak it all in. Drinks are 100% on me, steaks all round, happy days!
"It's absolutely brilliant that my neighbours have won, too. They'll all be happy and we're helping good causes. You've got to be in it to win it, winner winner chicken dinner!"
Pam's neighbour Gwyneth also received a wonderful £30,000 cheque. She said, "I couldn't believe it, I'm still shaking. I'm not used to having this much money. I have four children and 11 grandchildren so that's it spent already!
"It's wonderful the amount of people it helps and that something good comes out of it. It's a well-worthy cause."
As the other winners weren't available to receive their cheques in person, their prize money will be paid directly into their bank accounts.
Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson was in Ammanford meeting our winners and handing out cheques. He said, "I had a great day meeting our winners and we definitely didn't let the stormy weather dampen the mood! It sounds like Pam and her son have a lovely tropical holiday planned, and Gwyneth's family is in for a treat. Congratulations to everyone who won in Ammanford, even those we weren't able to visit!"
