Days before she won the lottery, hubby was red-faced over a remark he made to his wife.
After their TN24 0UA postcode was chosen as a winner in the People’s Postcode Lottery, eight Willesborough neighbors shared more than a quarter of a million pounds. Seven Evans Road residents won £30,000 apiece, with one neighbor tripling their winnings to £60,000 by buying two tickets.
Graham Gardiner, a 60-year-old driving instructor, would have missed out if his wife had listened to him when he informed her “it’s a waste of time” before entering the draw. When they received the excellent news, he quickly altered his tune. “Thirty grand?” he exclaimed. Wicked. That’s incredible!
“It’s actually rather amusing. Because [Debby] told me the other day, “We’re never going to win this, you know, because we don’t even have a doorbell!”
“It means a great deal to me. I’d want to take my family to Florida for a vacation because I enjoy all of the theme parks.”
Louise Taggart, a childminder and £30,000 winner, said: “Wow! That’s fantastic. I’m feeling a little numb.”
When the 44-year-old learned the excellent news, she was with her husband Steve. “We’ve missed a couple of vacations, and one of them was going to be two weeks with my parents, which we won’t get back,” Steve explained. So it’s good to know that money is still in the pot.”
“We’ll be able to take a great time away as a family,” Louise added. I’d like to remodel the bathroom, and we also require a new en suite. As a result, we should be able to accomplish both immediately.
“Perhaps we’ll toast with a glass of champagne later.”
“Brilliant news for some of our lucky players in Willesborough,” said People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Jeff Brazier, who disclosed the prize sums via video chat. It was fascinating to learn how Louise and Graham want to spend their prize money, with a little help from their families, of course.”
The People’s Postcode Lottery costs £10 per month to play, and there are daily winners. People participate in the game by entering their preferred postcode, which immediately enters them into all of the draws.
Players aren’t the only ones who benefit from the People’s Postcode Lottery; good causes benefit as well. Players have raised over £750 million for over 9,000 charities and good causes, with a minimum of 33% of each ticket going to charity. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
