A Cornwall village saw three neigbors win a prize of £120,000 in the Postcode Lottery. One of them played two tickets, which allowed them to win double the prize.
Carharrack is a Cornish village near Redruth and three neighbors hailing from it proved to be incredibly lucky, as they were able to scoop prizes from the People’s Postcode Lottery worth £120,000.
The winners opted to remain anonymous. Out of the three winners, two were able to win £30,000 each, while the third one had bought two tickets, which allowed them to win £60,000.
Danyl Johnson, the ambassador for the Postcode lottery said that the three winners from Carharrack had received a great surprise.
He congratulated each of the winners and said that they were hoping they would enjoy their win and have a good time spending their prize.
The Cornish village’s winners saw TR16 5RB, which is their postcode, get chosen as the winner of the People’s Postcode Lottery on Sunday, March 26th, 2023.
It costs £12 a month to play the Postcode Lottery in which people enter with their postcode.
Meanwhile, the NR10 5NE postcode was chosen as the winner of the People’s Postcode Lottery drawing on Saturday, March 25th, 2023, which was from the area of Hevingham.
A total of six lucky neighbors were able to win prizes through the said drawing, with each of them receiving a prize of £30,000.
There are around 1,200 people in Hevingham, which is located between Aylsham and Norwich. The funds raised from the People’s Postcode Lottery are used for local charities and good cuases.
Joe, one of the winners in Saturday’s drawing, said that they were happy with the win, but it would take a couple of days for the win to really settle in.
He added that he wants to use his prize for going on a dream holiday. He said that he had always dreamt of going to the Far East, such as China and Tokyo.
He added that Chris, his partner, had wanted to go on an African Safari and she was likely to get her way.
He stated that they were likely to have some arguments, but his other half usually gets her way eventually. The winner said that it felt surreal, but he was thrilled.
Other than going on a holiday, the couple is also planning to set aside some money for home renovations.
Joe stated that they had moved to the neighborhood two years earlier and they had been doing things in the house to make it their own.
He revealed that his partner wanted to renovate the garden and the prize would go a long way in doing so.
