Two neighbours in Ash got an early present after their postcode, GU12 6DJ, landed them an incredible £30,000 prize each. The lucky duo were winners in Sunday's Street Prize.
Driver Neville was joined by his wife Patricia when People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Danyl Johnson came knocking on his door to deliver his prize. Neville said, "I had no idea what would be inside the golden envelope but I'm totally elated. What a stonking time of year to win too, with Christmas just a few days away.
"Our two kids will really benefit and I think myself and Patricia will treat ourselves to a holiday in Italy. We've been quite a few times before but now our budget will be a little bigger!"
Patricia added, "I'm lost for words. What an amazing Christmas present for the whole family and it's great to know charities benefit too, so it's helping everybody."
Aircraft Engineer Paul also landed the cash and is planning a long overdue trip abroad. He said, "I've not had a holiday since 2005 so that’s on the top of my wish list. I would love to return to the States, it's almost 40 years since I visited California so it would be great to go back and see how it's changed. I can't wait to ring my sisters and tell them what’s happened – when I got the call from the team asking to come and visit one of them thought it was someone pulling my leg, so I think she'll be quite surprised!
"The nicest thing about the whole experience is that I've got to know Neville and Patricia as we'd never met previously but we're planning a Boxing Day celebration together where we'll be toasting to our lucky postcode with a few drinks."
Congratulating the winners Danyl Johnson said, "Neighbours like Neville and Paul winning and celebrating together is what People's Postcode Lottery is all about. I've had the best time spreading lots of festive cheer in our red jackets in Ash and couldn't be more thrilled for the winning pair."
