Two lucky residents in Sittingbourne are having a super Saturday after their postcode, ME10 1BX, was drawn in People's Postcode Lottery's Street Prize. One of the Borden Lane neighbours scooped £30,000, while the second doubled their prize to £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets.
Wayne, a self-employed electrician, was with his fiancée Michelle and their three year old son Edward when he received the cheque for £30,000. "I was quite astounded when I saw the amount I had won. We're in the process of renovating our house and this will mean we can get it finished much sooner than expected.
"I have a feeling Michelle will enjoy spending the win more than me. My daughter is at university so she'll definitely want a chunk of it too! I'm really looking forwarding to just relaxing and enjoying the win."
Martin doubled his prize to a staggering £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets. Martin and his wife Julie were jetting off to Iceland just after receiving their cheque, "We're going on holiday today so we'll be celebrating there. We'll need to get a decent bottle of champagne, this definitely calls for it! It will be an extra special Christmas too and I'll be able to get some great presents for my kids!"
Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson was the one who knocked on the winners' doors to hand over the cash. Danyl said, "I'm chuffed for Wayne and Martin! It sounds like they'll both enjoy spending their prize money and treating themselves."
With 32% of the ticket price going to charities, players of People's Postcode Lottery have now raised £361 Million for good causes across Great Britain and internationally. This prize was part of a draw promoted by Postcode Children Trust.
A number of local Sittingbourne charities have benefited from funding raised by players, including Space 2 Be Me. The group received £6,400 last year to run employability workshops for young people with additional needs.
