Three lucky neighbours in Pulloxhill have ended their week on a high after scooping today's £30,000 Street Prize. Their winning postcode, MK45 5EQ, landed each of them a thrilling £30,000 cheque.
Every day throughout our August draws we'll announce one postcode as a £30,000 Street Prize winner. Each player in that lucky postcode will win £30,000 for every ticket they hold.
A Massive Difference
Winner Emma was left stunned after learning of her windfall during a video call with Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson. After Danyl revealed her big cheque, Emma gasped and said, "Oh my God! You're kidding me. No way! Oh my, Wow!
"I can't believe that, for once I'm speechless. I'm actually shaking."
The mum-of-two welled up at the sight of her prize and her thoughts soon turned to what her winnings could do for her family. She said, "We started renovating the house before lockdown. So, it was really tough getting through it and having to make do with a lot of things - with the two children and the dog, it was tough for all of us.
"We haven't finished the renovations, so this is just going to make a massive difference to us with trying to finish off the house, to get it back to how we actually need it for the kids."
Emma didn't need to think too much about what they'd be asking their mum for after finding out about her lottery win. She laughed and said, "They'll definitely want a holiday - I think everyone does, don't they, at the moment. I think another thing on the cards is an electric scooter."
She was equally delighted that two of her neighbours had also won £30,000 cheques. She said, "That's absolutely brilliant! Everyone around our neighbourhood is fantastic, everyone gets on so well together. It's a lovely neighbourhood to be in and I'm so pleased for them, that's incredible."
When asked how she'll celebrate, Emma joyfully responded, "A nice meal. We'll definitely have a bottle of wine, that's definitely on the cards."
Danyl Johnson said, "I was so pleased to bring this incredible surprise to Emma today, I couldn't be happier for her. I hope she can use the winnings to get those renovations completed and treat her family to an amazing holiday as well!
"Congratulations to all three of our winners in Pulloxhill, I'm sure they'll be celebrating all weekend."
