A sensational nine neighbours from Nuneaton are celebrating today thanks to the luck of their postcode. Each of our winners won a £30,000 cheque after their postcode, CV10 9QW, was drawn in our Tuesday Street Prize. Their cheques were revealed during a video call by Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson.
One of our happy winners was Ian, who works in distribution for a supermarket. Ian said he felt on top of the world when Danyl pulled his big cheque out of its envelope and added, "It's brilliant, absolutely superb." Ian was joined on the call by Sharon, his wife of 35 years. On seeing the prize amount, she cheered and exclaimed, "Oh wow! This doesn't seem real, this is amazing!"
The couple, who have lived at the postcode for nearly 20 years, couldn't wait to share the news with the rest of their family. Sharon added, "We're a really close family, we've got eight children, five grandchildren. We'll have to video call everyone!"
The couple have a few plans for their winnings. Sharon said, "We owe a small amount on our mortgage, we'll get rid of that. We've got teenage boys at home so we'll treat them, and we have got a holiday booked in Greece next July so we'll pay that off!"
When asked how they might celebrate, Ian was hoping to arrange a family get-together when it's safe to do so. Sharon added, "I've got prosecco chilled in the fridge but I might have to upgrade to champagne!"
After the call Danyl Johnson said, "It was so nice to speak to Ian and Sharon and give them this fantastic news. I hope they can get that family get together organised soon. Congratulations to them and all our other Nuneaton winners!"
