Six Bexhill-on-Sea neighbours are feeling particularly festive after winning a share of £180,000 thanks to their postcode. The Ninfield Road residents won £30,000 each after TN39 5JJ was named as today's winning postcode.
These prizes are part of our special #30KADAY Christmas celebration in which one postcode is drawn every day in December's draws, and every ticket in that postcode wins a £30,000 Street Prize.
One of our lucky winners was Martin, who only signed up to play with People's Postcode Lottery last month. Martin said, "I was absolutely gobsmacked to have won, I couldn't actually believe it. I've seen the adverts on TV and all the good causes that the money goes towards, so decided to take the plunge and start playing - and it was perfect timing!
"The money will certainly go a long way. I have two daughters so I'll be looking to help them with a bit of their deposits for a house. It's great to have made a small contribution to local causes and charities too."
Another lucky winner was his neighbor Andrew who is already planning a holiday to Iceland with his wife Rachel. Andrew said, "To win £30,000 is one of the most amazing things that's happened to me. My wife and I went to Iceland four years ago during the winter, so we'd like to go back in the summer to enjoy the longer days as it's a lovely place, with fantastic scenery. My eldest son and his wife are looking to buy a house, so I'd also like to help them with the deposit and put some money aside for our own savings too.
"I'm so glad I started playing People's Postcode Lottery. It's not just the appeal of winning big prizes but also the support that goes towards local charities. Winning has been a great end to the year and I can't wait to spend our winnings in 2020."
Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson visited Ninfield Road to hand out the winning cheques. He said, "What a lovely bunch of winners we had down in Bexhill-on-Sea! The atmosphere was great with everyone enjoying the festive period and winning their prizes.
"It was great to hear from Martin and Andrew and I hope they both enjoy spending the cash on their holidays and families. It's thanks to players like the residents here in Bexhill-on-Sea that we can continue raising money for some fantastic local charities, and give away big prizes. I wish the winners and everyone else a great start to the New Year and hope to meet many more players in 2020!"
