A trio of Audenshaw residents have won £30,000 each after their postcode, M34 5LF, was drawn as a winner of our Sunday Street Prize.
A Big Shock
Eschelle was one of our three lucky winners, and said the news still hasn't sunk in. She added, "I can't quite believe it. My husband, Rob, and our two children are all at home just now, so all of us were gathered round the phone in the landing listening in. I put the phone down and thought, 'Did that really just happen?!' It was a very nice phone call to get! I kept reliving the words over and over.
"I was quite emotional actually. I don't think I'm a very lucky person. We go abroad and have the worst weather ever, so it was a big shock. My children were screaming!"
Eschelle hasn't decided what she'll spend her prize money on yet, but has a few ideas. She said, "My kids both love horse riding, so they've been searching for horses to buy near us. I used to have some when I was younger so it's in our blood. Maybe at some point in the future we will get a new addition to the family! We obviously can't book a holiday at the moment, but it gives us some options that we didn't have before.
"We're just trying to take it in. Everybody we have spoken to is happy for us. It's a bit of nice news for now."
It's not the first time that Eschelle has won. In April 2018 the Audenshaw community shared a £3 Million prize in our monthly Postcode Millions draw, with Eschelle scooping £1,989. Eschelle said, "We won two years ago and the full postcode that won the big amount was a few streets down. I didn't think it was likely to happen again but I'm glad that I stuck it out!"
Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt said, "Well done to all of our Audenshaw winners! It's lovely to hear that Eschelle was able to experience the news with all of her family, and I hope they enjoy spending the money when they can. I'm sending a big congratulations to everyone!"
