A lucky couple from Papworth Everard are celebrating after winning an incredible £30,000 each as part of our #30KADAY Street Prize extravaganza.
Our Byfield Road winners, Charlotte and Larry, scooped the cheques after their postcode, CB23 3UQ, was announced as the Saturday Street Prize winner.
Charlotte said, "It's great that we can now afford to splurge a bit. I recently had a couple of months of not working after giving up a job I loved after 15 years, so this is a nice treat for having a bit of faith.
"We both pay £10 a month on a ticket which is not a huge deal. Even though we've won, we're going to carry on playing as knowing we're helping charities by playing is a good thing all round. Who knows, we might even get lucky in the future and win big again one day!"
A Good Thing All Round
Larry said, "I still can't believe it's real. I'm looking forward to upgrading my car, but I don't really know what else I'm going to spend my prize on. It will be nice being able to spend money here and there and not having to think twice.
"It's also a great relief having our own tickets as that way there's no arguments about what to do with our money!"
Street Prize Presenter Jeff Brazier was in Papworth Everard to hand over their prizes. He said, "Meeting people and presenting big cheques like this always puts a smile on all of our faces. It was lovely to meet Larry and Charlotte and see how excited they were to win this week's Street Prize. Hearing they both played with their own tickets was extra special as they now each have £30,000 to spend how they like! I can't wait to hear how they choose to spend their prizes."
