Three neighbours from Newtown are celebrating after winning Wednesday's Street Prize as part of the #30KADAY extravaganza!
The trio scooped the cash with their lucky postcode SY16 2DZ. The win saw two Milford Road residents pick up cheques for £30,000 each, whilst our third scooped £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets.
Grandfather Ross was the double ticket holder. When he saw what he'd won he kissed his cheque and exclaimed, "You beauty!"
"I feel like a right lucky so and so. I haven't got a middle name so I guess Lucky will do from now on, won't it?"
He described the whole experience as surreal, and added, "Earlier on today I was coming out the gym and found a penny on the ground, I've found many a penny before but I picked this one up and spat on it and had a funny feeling something good would happen and here we are!"
A World Of Possibilities
Ross continued, "You live in hope for a moment like this so I can't believe it, it's just sinking in now. This opens a world of possibilities and means I'll be in a comfortable head space not having to worry about money. I'm just made up.
"Myself and my wife Trisha have always dreamt of buying a caravan at the park up the road where it's so beautiful and quiet. It was always a bit of a distant dream, but not anymore it isn't. I've got two children and my granddaughter also just recently turned one, so I'll put a bit aside for them too. It's not just me that's won, but the whole family has."
Handing Ross his golden envelope was Street Prize Presenter Matt Johnson. He said, "It's always a pleasure coming home to Wales and it's been made all the better by getting to hand over a lovely big cheque to Ross and make his day. I hope he has a great time spoiling his family with the windfall."
