Santa Claus came a little early for three Greenock neighbours this Christmas Eve after they scooped an incredible £30,000 each. The Huntly Drive residents each won big after PA16 0YP was revealed as a winning postcode with People's Postcode Lottery today.
One of our wonderful winners was May. After receiving her cheque, the local school cleaner said, "This is brilliant, it's amazing. That's Christmas sorted!"
The grandmother of six has been living in the street for over 25 years. May already has some ideas on how to spend her cash windfall. May said, "I'll definitely be going on holiday and I'll also visit my son in Jersey. I have four grandchildren down there as well."
A Double Win
This was the second time May and her neighbours had received a golden envelope. Their postcode was selected as a £1,000 winner earlier this year. May laughed, "I always thought I was unlucky, at least until this year!"
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Jeff Brazier visited Huntly Drive to surprise May and hand over her fabulous cheque. Jeff said, "It was lovely to meet May and surprise her with £30K and what better time of year to get a surprise like this than Christmas Eve! It sounds like May has already got some ideas on what to do with her winnings, I hope she can visit her grandchildren soon. I'm sure this has made the festive season extra special for all our winners!"
