A Rugby man has scooped an incredible £25,000 just one month after signing up to play People's Postcode Lottery.

David Tanser won the cash after his postcode CV22 5JY was drawn as a winner of one of two Saturday Street Prizes today.

With just a week to go before Christmas, the retail worker was delighted with his lucky win. He said, "I'm just so surprised to win because I only signed up to play a month ago after seeing a television advert.

"A few days before I got my cheque, my car broke down, but now I don't have to worry about the repairs - I can get a new car. Obviously with Christmas on the way, my partner and three stepchildren will be treated to some nice presents too."

Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson said, "It was a pleasure to give away £25,000 to David. Sign up to play now and you never know, we could be knocking on your door very soon with a golden envelope."

Players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £161 Million to date for charities across Great Britain and internationally.

A project near Rugby that has received support from players is RoSA, which was awarded £20,000 last year to deliver therapeutic workshops for victims of sexual abuse.

There were also happy players in Battersea this weekend, as SW11 2SU was drawn as the other Saturday Street Prize winner.
