March's Postcode Millions, with a fantastic £4.1 Million prize fund, has been revealed to land in lucky postcode RH6 7LZ in Horley. People's Postcode Lottery players with tickets in sector RH6 7 have won whopping prizes. Watch Jeff Brazier reveal the winning postcode in our Facebook Live video.
The biggest prizes were won by those playing with the full winning postcode of RH6 7LZ. Five lucky neighbours each picked up cheques for £375,805.
The remaining 374 winners in the sector received different cheque amounts depending on the number of tickets they played with. There were 321 players with a single ticket who each won £5,082, and 43 players with two tickets who each won £10,164. Ten players with three tickets each won £15,246.
One of the five lucky residents with the full winning postcode was Andrew. He learned how much he'd won during a video call with People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Jeff Brazier.
Andrew was joined on the call by his wife Donna whom he met in school. As his cheque was revealed he pumped his fist and exclaimed, "Yes! That is quality. Absolute quality!" Donna teared up on seeing the total and added, "Oh my God! That is amazing. When you do the lottery you never think it will be you who will win it. It is amazing."
Andrew, a local warehouse manager, wasn't sure how they'd spend their windfall at first. He said, "We'll put it in the bank, leave it and think about it for a while. I've been thinking about my retirement, it'll be a lot earlier! I think it's going to give me lots of options."
Donna had a couple of ideas for what they could use the funds for and said, "I'm thinking of all the practical things we need, a new fridge and a new oven. We're due to go to Florida at the end of the year, if we can get there. I'm sure there will be some treats and extra special things there."
Thinking of another item to add to their wish list Andrew exclaimed, "A jacuzzi! For the nice weather outside."
When asked how they might celebrate Donna joked, "Plenty of gin! We had our family in the garden yesterday, so I think they'll be expecting some fillet steaks on the barbecue later!"
Can't Stop Shaking
Another happy couple celebrating a big win were Paul and Debs. The grandparents-of-six couldn't believe their eyes when Jeff revealed their massive cheque. Debs screamed and exclaimed, "Oh my God! I can't believe it! That's a fortune. That's completely changed our lives. I can't stop shaking!" Husband Paul, who owns his own bricklaying business, added, "Oh my God. What can we do with this amount?"
Debs, who works with a leading charity for children who have brain injuries, wondered if she might be able to retire early thanks to the win. She said, "I work the nights which are 12-and-half-hour shifts. I love the work, but I've just cut my night shifts down, so maybe now I might be able to retire a bit early or cut the night shifts down a little more." Paul added, "I feel very happy for my wife. She deserves it more than me!"
As the news began to sink in, Debs thought of a few plans for their winnings. She laughed as she said, "I need a kitchen, I need an extension, I need a new car! My car is literally on its last legs."
The couple were also excited to share the good fortune with their family. Debs added, "Now we can meet up that'll be nice. We've got four sons, a daughter and six grandchildren. We're all going to enjoy Easter this year! It might be separate as there's too many to get together all at the same time, but we'll get round to everyone.
"It would be nice to put something aside for a holiday with them all, just to get back together. I've missed them all so much. I'd like to take the grandkids to Disney, but we'll have to talk about that!"
Presenter Jeff Brazier sent his well-wishes to all our winners. He said, "It was so lovely to bring this fantastic news to Paul, Andrew and all our other winners today. I couldn't be happier for them. You can really see what this win means for them.
"I'm sure there will be plenty of celebrations across Horley this week! I hope our winners enjoy the cash and get to treat themselves with their winnings."
