Three neighbours in Harrow can't believe their luck today after discovering they've each won a cash prize of £30,000 per ticket, all thanks to their postcode. The trio landed the windfall when HA2 0TP was announced as a winner of Wednesday's #30KADAY Street Prize.
Pleased For Everyone
Among our winners is Lynn, who works as a science technician in a school. She found out how much she'd won during her lunch break, with Street Prize Presenter Matt Johnson delivering the good news over a video call.
Lynn exclaimed, "Oh wow, thank you! I haven't got any words - just amazing. I'm speechless! I'm really pleased for everyone that has won.
"It might take a while to sink in, I've never had that amount of money before. It just means I won't have to think about things for a while. It'll just be nice to have a little bit of extra money to do something nice with."
With three children, Lynn isn't short of people to help her spend the windfall. She said, "It will help out immensely - my daughter will be going to uni in a couple of years so it'll help out with that. I think the kids would all like to go back to Disneyland too, so I might take everyone away there. I'm sure they'll have it all spent for me already!"
Matt Johnson said, "While we're not able to knock on doors and deliver golden envelopes in person, it's still an absolute pleasure to be able to surprise winners like Lynn over Zoom. It was lovely to chat and hear her plans for the cash - I hope she was still able to eat her lunch after getting a surprise like that!"
