What a start to the weekend for three lucky players in Huyton - they've each scooped a £30,000 cheque! Our winners landed the windfall when their postcode, L36 6AL, was announced as a winner of our Saturday Street Prize.
Shaking All Over
Liz and Ronnie, who have been together for 26 years and who each play with a ticket, found out they'd won during a video call with Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson. Liz said, "Oh my God, no way! Ronnie is shaking something terrible. The phone is shaking with our hands. This means everything - we've never had that in our lives."
The pair, who are both retired due to ill health, plan to treat their family. Liz said, "We've five children between us, ten grandchildren and one great-grandchild. We like to spoil the grandchildren so we'll be helping them." Ronnie added jokingly, "We might even help our own children!"
A transatlantic trip to visit family is also on the cards. Liz said, "My sister and nieces are out in California. We've been a couple of times but to be able to go and have a bit of money and really have a good time, we've never been able to do that before. We'll be going to Las Vegas too and spending our winnings there! The way things are we can't go yet but we'll definitely be going.
"Ronnie would also love to buy a campervan so we could get out and explore the country. We'd love to explore Scotland."
Ronnie added, "We won't be able to sleep tonight, there's no way. We'll send out for a meal to celebrate. The kids won't believe us."
Danyl Johnson said, "It sounds like Liz and Ronnie are going to have a whale of a time with their windfall - I'm made up for them. It was lovely to hear their plans to treat the family too. I'm sure our other lucky winner in Huyton will be just as pleased with their cheque."
