It's a super Saturday for one player in Somercotes who got the good news they'd netted themselves a £30,000 cash prize. Lucky Diane landed the five-figure sum when her postcode, DE55 4NH, was announced as the winner of today's £30,000 Street Prize.
Diane, who works for Nottingham City Homes, was delighted when she found out how much she'd won. She said, "Oh my gosh that's brilliant! I can't believe it. I don't know what I'll do with it - it's not really sunk in!"
Danyl's Digital Delivery
Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson revealed Diane's cheque through a video call from our Postcode Lottery headquarters. Diane said, "My friend from work was with me when I got the call and she was screaming! She ran out to tell everyone in the office. They've all been asking at work how to sign up now. My colleague said no-one ever wins so she had to eat her words! The people at work also had to tell my husband Raymond that it wasn't a windup as he didn't believe me when I called him."
Diane and Raymond have a Newfoundland dog called Archie who will be reaping the benefits of the win. Diane said, "We'll send Archie to the poodle parlour for a good clean and wash. He loves the hairdryer so it will be a treat for him."
This draw was promoted on behalf of Barnardo's, which has received more than £4 Million thanks to our generous players. Diane said, "It's one of the reasons I play, I like making sure I donate to charity on a regular basis. Doing the lottery means I'm giving to a lot of causes so it's great! It goes towards so many and Barnardo's is a great cause."
Danyl added, "Even though we weren't able to meet Diane in person, it was great to see her reaction to winning thanks to the wonders of technology! I hope Diane, and of course her dog Archie, enjoy treating themselves with the prize money."

Today's Street Prize is part of a draw promoted by Barnardo's. As one of the leading children's charities, Barnardo's helps more than 300,000 vulnerable children, young people and families across the UK. They do this by providing essential services and offering preventative and intensive support across a range of issues including exploitation, abuse, disability inclusion, vocational training and mental health.
Player support helps local charities too. St Martins School was awarded £2,000 in 2018. This funding enabled the school, which supports youngsters with additional learning needs, to purchase bikes and adapted trikes to allow children with disabilities to go cycling.
