Four players from Manchester are having a super Sunday after a little luck landed them a whopping win. Their postcode M18 7QS was today announced as a winner of our Street Prize. Three of the residents won £30,000 cheques each while a fourth scooped £60,000 as they play with two tickets.
These prizes are part of our special #30KADAY celebrations where one lucky postcode is a Street Prize winner every single day in October's draws, and every ticket in that postcode wins £30,000.
Mum-of-four Julie was one of our lucky winners and cheered when she saw her £30,000 cheque. She exclaimed, "I was in shock, definitely! It felt amazing."
Julie learned of her windfall with her partner, Zia, and the couple had some big plans for their winnings. Julie said, "Zia is just getting ready to open his own double glazing manufacturing company, so the money will definitely come in handy to help getting it fully open.
"It's always been his dream to have his own manufacturing company. Previously he used to buy the frames and fit them but now he can make his own frames."
Julie, who is a stay-at-home mum, plans to use some of her prize money for a family trip. She added, "I think we all deserve a little holiday somewhere! That's all I want is a little getaway with the family." Her children would be getting some treats as well. Julie explained, "Christmas is coming, so we'll have that all sorted!"
When asked how they might celebrate her good fortune, Julie said, "Just a night away from the kids would be nice. We'll book a nice restaurant and go for a meal together."
Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt congratulated today's happy winners. She said, "What a great surprise to end the week on! I'm so happy for Julie and our other winners in Manchester today, I'm sure they're all over the moon right now. I hope they all have fun with their winnings and get themselves a treat with the cash!"
Today's prize is part of a draw promoted on behalf of Postcode Justice Trust, which supports organisations including Helen Bamber Foundation, Women for Women International and Plan International UK with regular grant funding. They help improve lives by delivering justice, human rights and equality.
