Nine lucky players in Hull received a very special delivery when our Street Prize team knocked on their doors and presented them with golden envelopes. Their postcode, HU4 7HD, was today announced as a winner of our £30,000 Street Prize.
Nearly Went Into Early Labour!
Expectant-mum Natalie got the shock of her life when she found out she'd won £30,000 after having signed up three weeks before. She said, "I nearly went into early labour!
"I've only paid £10, and now I've won this - it's crazy. It doesn't seem real."
Steven was joined by his wife Susan when he was presented with his cheque. She said, "It's been a rollercoaster year for us - Steven had major heart surgery at Christmas, we got married in May and had our honeymoon in June, and now this! It's absolutely brilliant after everything we've been through. I think we'll use the money to go on a cruise next year."
Nervous And Excited
Married couple Christine and Robert were both playing so together won £60,000. Christine said, "We've never won anything before. We were so nervous and excited when we saw Judie walking up to the door and this is just amazing.
"We'll definitely spend the money on a few holidays - we do mostly short haul these days, but I've always wanted to go to San Francisco so maybe we'll do a trip there."
Lovely To Win Together
Paula was delighted to share the experience of winning with her neighbours. She said, "I grew up in the area, it's quite small and everyone knows each other so it's really lovely to win together. Everyone really deserves it too."
Winner Kelly said, "My husband Matt and I have seven boys, so it'll be amazing to go away on a big family holiday and really treat them."
Tony and Sharon also won £30,000 cheques. As the remaining winner couldn't be there to collect their prize, their money will be paid directly into their bank account.
Street Prize Presenters Danyl Johnson and Judie McCourt were in Hull to meet the winners. Danyl said, "A massive congratulations to all of our winners in Hull! It's fantastic to see such a big group of neighbours celebrating the win together."
Good Causes Around Britain

Find out more about the range of charities and good causes which our players support.
Today's prize is part of a draw promoted by Woodland Trust, which has received over £10 Million thanks to player funding. This has enabled the charity to help hundreds of communities all over Britain to plant trees through its Free Trees Packs initiative. In 2018, over 930,000 trees were planted.
A local cause supported by players is Goodwin Development Trust, which has received £15,000. The money went towards buying a new minibus for local residents to take them to appointments, to go shopping, or on other important journeys.
