One lucky player from Brightwell is £30,000 richer this weekend!
Grandmother of four Elaine plays with the winning postcode, IP10 0BD, and is celebrating after scooping Saturday's Street Prize.
Elaine said the win had come at just the right time, "I haven't had a particularly good year but something good has certainly come out of it now. My husband David is due to retire so this will help us along our way and we won't have to watch every penny that we spend now."
Treating The Grandchildren
Our Brightwell winner also said that her prize money would make life a little easier, adding, "David has trouble with his knees so this means I'll be able to get a nice, compact mobility scooter that he can easily get in and out of the car which will really take the difficulty out of going out for the day. I'll be treating the grandchildren and our two sons as well, so the whole family will get something out of it."
First of all, a special trip will be on the cards. Elaine said, "We'd been humming and hawing over whether we could go away but we're definitely doing it now. I don't like to go far but I love Norfolk. We usually get self-catering but as a treat we'll be staying in a hotel with a spa where we won't have to do a thing.
"I've never had a cocktail before so I think I'll treat myself to my first one and celebrate in real style!"
Visiting Brightwell to deliver Elaine her cheque was Street Prize Presenter Jeff Brazier. He said, "Presenting players with big cheques and making their day is the best thing about my job and hearing how much of a difference this prize will make to Elaine and David was fantastic. I'm sure they'll have a great time celebrating in Norfolk with a spa break and I can't wait to hear how Elaine enjoys her first cocktail."
