FOUR neighbours in Kelty have got their summer off to a winning start as they scooped a cash prize of £30,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Blair Street neighbours landed the money as KY4 0ET was drawn as People’s Postcode Lottery’s Street Prize winner on Wednesday 10 July 2019.

Cleaner Margaret Conners, 59, couldn’t believe her luck when she was presented with the prize. She said: “I’m so excited. You just don’t think something like this will happen to you.

“I’m not sure what I’ll spend it on – maybe a nice holiday.”

Margaret’s partner, local window-cleaner Eric Robertson, was with her when she was presented with her cheque. He added: “I know what she’ll spend it on – clothes!”

Shop assistant Gina Marshall, 56, also won a £30,000 prize. She said: “I can’t believe it! I’m still in shock. My husband William thought it was a scam at first when I told him we were getting a visit, and I think it’s still sinking in for both of us.

“It’s lovely that our neighbours have won with us too and that local charities have benefitted from us playing. It’s great for the community.”

The remaining winners couldn’t be there to collect their prize, so the money will be paid directly into their bank accounts.

The prize is part of People’s Postcode Lottery’s special summer campaign in which one postcode is announced every day throughout its July draws and everyone who plays in it wins £30,000.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson presented the winners with their cheques.

He said: “A massive congratulations to our Kelty winners! I hope they have a fantastic time treating themselves with their winnings.

“This is the start of a very busy month for us at Postcode Lottery, and I hope I’m back in the area with some more big cheques soon!”

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and good causes. Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have helped raise more than £450 million to date for good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

This draw was promoted on behalf of Unicef, which has received £5,130,684 thanks to funding raised by players. Thanks to this support, the charity can continue its work to make the world a safer place for every child, from providing food and clean water, to giving them a place to laugh and play.
