A street in Edinburgh is home to three fabulous £30,000 winners thanks to their lucky postcode. The Moredunvale Grove residents netted the cash when EH17 7QZ was announced as today's #30KADAY Street Prize winner.
Treating The Kids
One of our three winners was Cindy, who was delighted with her windfall. On seeing her whopping £30,000 cheque, she exclaimed, "Oh wow, oh my God! I was only thinking it would be £1,000. I'm shaking. That's amazing. My heart's going bom-bom-bom!"
When asked how she might spend her winnings, Cindy said, "I don't know honestly! I want to give my kids some money. If there's anything left over for me, I'll get a car and I'll get a new suite for my living room."
Cindy was thrilled to hear about all the Charities being supported and had a special fondness for one of the causes that received funding from players of People's Postcode Lottery. She said, "I want to give something to PDSA. They helped my dog when she was needing it. They were so good, I'm always handing stuff into them. Every time I win anything, no matter how big it is, I always try to give them something."
Our visit to Edinburgh followed social-distancing guidelines and Street Prize Presenter Matt Johnson didn't attend in person. He did, however, send his congratulations to all our lucky winners. He said, "I am so happy for Cindy and our other Edinburgh winners today, what an amazing surprise for them. I hope they enjoy their winnings and go and treat themselves to a special something to celebrate."
