With Street Prizes bringing celebrations to lucky postcodes every day in July's draws, we're loving the chance to deliver happy smiles and golden envelopes to communities across the country. Today, it's time to party in Doncaster where two lucky winners have collected £30,000 cheques thanks to their postcode DN4 6HU being drawn in today's Street Prize.
An Incredible Surprise
Ann, who is mother to three children, grandmother to six, and great-grandmother to two, was at home with her son Alan when the People's Postcode Lottery team came knocking on her door. Ann said, "I was so glad that Alan was at home with me when everyone arrived as it was such an incredible surprise I thought I might pass out with the shock!"
Stunned Ann was able to steady her nerves but hasn't decided just yet what she'll spend her winnings on as she's had a "crazy few weeks." As well as finding out that she's just won £30,000, Ann will be celebrating her birthday in coming days. Last week also marked one year since she had her last round of radiotherapy.
Ann said, "I was over the moon to mark that anniversary and this is the perfect way to celebrate. I'm going to Doncaster Races for my birthday, so I'll see if I can make it four lucky weeks by winning there too!"
As the other winner wasn't there to collect their cheque in person, their prize money will be paid directly into their bank account.
Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt was making today's special delivery. She said, "It was an absolute delight to meet Ann. She was stunned by just how much she had won. I'm sure that she'll celebrate her birthday in style now and enjoy spending her winnings!"
Deserving Projects Worldwide
32% of the ticket price goes to charities and good causes. To date, players have raised over £450 Million for thousands of deserving projects worldwide. Our players are changing lives every day, helping people and the planet. Thank you for all your support - we really couldn't do it with you.
Today's prize is part of a draw promoted by Canal & River Trust, which has received over £6.4 Million thanks to player support. This money has enabled the charity to fund a range of important projects, helping to realise their vision of living waterways that transform places and enrich lives.
One supported project close to our winners is Citizens Advice Doncaster Borough, which received £19,835 last year. The project aims to lower poverty by providing a debt advice service that is open throughout the week.
