This summer, we're turning up the heat with sizzling £30,000 Street Prizes every single day. Our presenters are run ragged, travelling back and forth across the country, delivering amazing prizes to surprised winners. Today, it's Royton's turn in the sun, with eight lucky players in postcode OL2 5RD each winning a £30,000 prize.
Among the All Saints Close winners is mum of two Carly. She said, "I can't believe I've just won £30,000. It's a mind-blowing amount. I don't know what I'll spend it on, we'll be able to carry out some home improvements and take a family holiday away somewhere abroad, maybe Spain."
Carly said, "It's great that the lottery helps so many different charities. I've won the odd £10 or £20, so it gives back to you too and it can seriously give back to you, just like today! It feels amazing to have won with my neighbours. It's a really tight-knit community around here and to share a win like this with your friends is special."
Our other delighted winners included Linda F, Lynn and Mary. All picked up whopping £30,000 cheques. Our winners who weren't there to collect their cheques in person will have their prize money paid directly into their bank accounts.
After speaking with lucky neighbour Carly, Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt said, "What an incredible amount of money for one street to win with eight neighbours all taking home £30,000 each! Carly knows how she's going to spend her winnings and I'm sure all our other lucky winners in Royton will have some great plans for their prizes too. Congratulations everyone."
Deserving Projects Around The World
Players aren't the only ones who benefit from People's Postcode Lottery. 32% of the ticket price goes to charities and good causes. Thanks to our players, over £450 Million has been raised for deserving projects around the world.
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.
SPOONS is one charity close to our winners that players have helped to support. They were awarded £7,000 to help support and give advice to parents and families that have babies in the newborn intensive care unit. Monthly meetings allow families to support each other and increase their confidence in looking after their children.
