Fourteen Residents from Ferndown in Dorset England, already live in a popular holiday resort but have other destinations in mind. They are celebrating after winning a £5,000 holiday voucher and £2,000 spending money in the People’s Postcode Lottery Dream Holiday draw on March 5.
The group of residents from Pinehurst Park in Ferndown all share the same postcode BH22 0BS and that led to their People’s Postcode Lottery win. The player with the most to celebrate is Pauline Harris who was the only one of the residents to have purchased two tickets so wins 10,000 in holiday vouchers and £4,000 in spending money.
The 77-year-old says her last holiday was two years ago and is looking at booking a “nice holiday cottage with our voucher” but only if their Shih Tzu dog, called Brandy, can go with them.
Other winners in the People’s Postcode Lottery draw include Jean Fray, 89, and her son Gary Cole, 48. Jean is keen on going on a cruise just like Canadian Derek Maher after his $5m Lotto 6/49 win.
Her son has a trip to Las Vegas in mind and will take his sister and brother-in-law for an unforgettable holiday thanks to their People’s Postcode Lottery win. Adreen Nunnelly from Canada, also headed to Las Vegas after her $1m Lotto 6/49 windfall.
Lottery wins can make dreams come true and Sandra Druce, who owns three horses, has always dreamed of being able to go on a riding holiday through the Canadian Rockies just like Canadian $1m Lotto Max winner Susan Titus did. Now thanks to her People’s Postcode Lottery win, that’s just what the lucky player is going to do.
Recently we told you of Alison Wright from Wales who can now visit a friend in Australia after winning £500,000 playing Thunderball. Claire Tomkins has similar ideas as she has a son living in Brazil and the other in Singapore. She doesn’t see them very often but can now afford to visit both.
Sometimes it takes a while to get a lottery win with Dennis and Mary Graham from England playing for 20 years before winning a £4.5m UK Lotto jackpot. For Janet Dykstra, this was her first People’s Postcode Lottery draw and she’s planning a trip to Florida, USA.
Daryl Johnson, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, said: “It seems like we’re sending the whole street away on holiday.”
