30 July 2017 - DN7 5LP - Fishlake - £30,000
Great Catch For Fishlake
July 30th, 2017
One lucky Fishlake resident got a very exciting visit when Street Prize Presenter Judie McCourt arrived at his door with a cheque for £30,000.
The postcode DN7 5LP was drawn as the winner of Sunday's Street Prize, landing Rodney Sayner the prize money.
Rodney said he's going to buy a car with his winnings. "I've been saving up for a while to get a nicer car so it's great that I'll be able to do that straight away. After that I think my wife Jayne might have some ideas. Me, Jane and our daughter are going to go out for a meal to celebrate too – it's been a bit of a shock, but a very good one."
Judie McCourt said, "I'm delighted for Rodney and his family. I think he was very surprised to pull such a big cheque out of the golden envelope. I hope they enjoy spending it."
A minimum of 30% of the ticket price goes to charities. Players have, so far, raised more than £212 Million for good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
A local charity that has received support from players is Doncaster Deaf Trust, which was awarded £20,000 last year to create an enterprise project to develop students' skills in finance, IT and business at the same time as developing links to the community.
There was also lots of excitement in Peterborough and Hove, as postcode PE1 4RD was drawn as the winner of Saturday's Street Prize, and over 200 players in Hove shared £3 Million.
