Fareham And Glasgow Strike It Lucky
23 May 2015
PO16 8PF - Fareham - £25,000
G76 7DP - Glasgow - £5,000 Dream Holiday
Players in two lucky postcodes will be celebrating this weekend, as the Saturday Street Prize has landed in PO16 8PF in Fareham, and tickets in G76 7DP in Glasgow have won £5,000 Dream Holidays.
Our first lucky winner is Zoe Ayling from Fareham who is delighted this week to have won £25,000.
Zoe was blown away to discover former X-Factor star and People's Postcode Lottery presenter Danyl Johnson on her doorstep with a £25,000 cheque. "When I opened the cheque, I couldn't stop crying," she said. "I'm just an ordinary person - this kind of thing doesn't happen to me."
Zoe, a health care support worker, decided to sign up early last year after her family convinced her to play. "My in-laws play and told us all about it," she said. "I love the fact that I don't have to choose numbers every week."
Zoe already has plans as to how to spend her winnings. "We need to do some home improvements," she said. "I'd like to re-do the kitchen, bathroom and driveway. They are the type of things that we usually save up to do but now I can get them all done at once," she said.
As well as some home improvements, Zoe, a mother of three, has decided to treat her children. "My husband Mark and I decided to give our three kids, Sophie, Lewis, and Lloyd, £1,000 each," she said. "I think they already have an idea of how to spend it."
People's Postcode Lottery Street Prize presenter Danyl Johnson said, "It was fantastic to meet Zoe and present her with her cheque. She was delighted to win £25,000, and I hope she has a great time spending her winnings."
Also this weekend, every winning ticket in G76 7DP picks up a £5,000 Dream Holiday prize. Lucky winners will be enjoying some fun in the sun.
Players have raised over £69.2 Million for charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally. One local project to Fareham is Relate Portsmouth & District, which was awarded £2,000 from players for their family therapy room. Relate Portsmouth & District is an independent charity that promotes health, respect and justice in couple and family relationships. With its funding from players, the charity transformed counselling rooms into family therapy rooms with sofas, rugs, toys and other aids used to support family therapy.
