Two lucky Gainsborough neighbours won £30,000 each this weekend in the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Lilian Parker and her neighbour, who play with the postcode DN21 4BX, won the first Street Prize.

Watch the moment Lilian finds out how much she won:

She said: “When I found out I’d won, I was expecting £1,000, which I was excited enough about – so when I pulled out the cheque and it said £30,000, I couldn’t believe it!

“I called my husband to tell him and he thought I was joking – he called me back to make sure it was real.

“I haven’t had much of a chance to think about what I’ll do with the money, but it will be lovely to be able to treat my nieces and nephews and to not have to worry about bills and things like that.

“I’m sure my husband and I will treat ourselves to something nice too – maybe a new car.”

There was one other £30,000 winner on the street who was unavailable to receive their cheque, but their winnings will be deposited directly into their bank account.

Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson said: “As always, it has been fantastic to surprise a lucky winner with her cheque.

“Playing People’s Postcode Lottery helps so many charities, which is a great reason to play, and of course you could win too.”
