12 players in Newark are flying high following their postcode's Dream Holiday win.
They’ll each get £2,000 worth of holiday vouchers and £5,000 in cash to spend on their travels. One lucky winner plays with two tickets and doubled her prize and so received £4,000 in holiday vouchers and £10,000 in spending money.
Gwendaline was the lucky double ticket winner. Gwendaline said, "It's just wonderful! My husband can't travel well so we'll probably just stay in the UK, but we'll be able to have some fantastic local holidays with all our holiday vouchers.
"I've got three children, two daughters who live in England and a son who is living in Malaysia at the moment, so I’d like to be able to help them all out with holidays too – my son is coming over to visit soon but maybe I can treat him to his next trip home."
Yvonne was joined by her husband John when she was presented with her prize. She said, "It's going to be our 48th wedding anniversary this year and we never actually managed to have a honeymoon back then, so it would be amazing to take an extra-special holiday this year over our anniversary to make up for it."
Tara was also delighted to win the prize. She said, "It's been a hard year for my family as my sister passed away, so it would be wonderful to go somewhere sunny and relaxing. I have five children, although one doesn’t live at home anymore, so we'll take a big family holiday."
Christina already has her dream holiday in mind! She said, "I don't know about the kids, but I'm desperate to go to Disneyland! My husband Lee and I have four boys, aged between 5 and 20, so some will be more up for it than others I think.
"This is such a fantastic prize, I had no idea what to expect when I found out the Postcode Lottery team were coming so I'm thrilled."
Bettina, Denise, Scott, Sheila and Nik also landed the prize, along with three other neighbours.
Partying in Penicuik
Two lucky people in Penicuik are celebrating after picking up a Dream Holiday prize.
Thanks to the win, one of the Eastfield Drive residents scooped £2,000 in holiday vouchers, as well as £5,000 in cash to spend on their travels. The second winner plays with two tickets so doubled their prize to £4,000 in vouchers and £10,000 in spending money.
Lizzie was the lucky lady playing with two tickets and was elated when the People's Postcode Lottery team came knocking on her door. She said, "I'm totally bewildered but ecstatic all at the same time, I can't believe what's just happened! I've had quite a difficult time over the past few months so it's great to get some good news for a change."
Lizzie was joined by Sally and Karen, two of her best friends, when she found out what she'd won. She plans to whisk them both away with the holiday vouchers. She added, "Sally and Karen are always there for me and they've both helped me a lot. I can't wait to spread the joy and share my happiness with them and go on the girls' holiday of a lifetime. Once we've finished celebrating I'll need to think about where to go. I'd love to go to New York or Miami, or maybe even to Iceland to see the Northern Lights – the world is my oyster now!"
Khaled, a father of four who works as a Domestic Assistant at Edinburgh University, was thrilled to discover he had won too. He said, "I can't really explain how happy I am just now. We've never had the opportunity to go away on holiday as a family before, so with Easter coming up this is the perfect opportunity to take the kids and my wife Marna away on a surprise holiday somewhere special!"
One of the main reasons Khaled signed up to play People's Postcode Lottery was because he's helping to support so many good causes by playing. He added, "It's nice to know that you're helping to do some good and I like that such a broad range of charities are supported, from Dogs Trust to Amnesty International."
It's not just People's Postcode Lottery players who win as 32% of the ticket price goes to charities. To date, our players have raised a staggering £393 Million for good causes and charities around the world. These Dream Holiday prizes were part of a draw promoted by Crisis.
