Port Talbot Student and Grandmother Win £400,000 People's Postcode Lottery prize

The People's Postcode Lottery manages society lotteries on behalf of a range of charitable bodies. These lotteries support good causes all over Britain.

PRLog - May 10, 2012 - WISBECH, U.K. -- One of the latest lucky people to win is Lauren Teesdale from Port Talbot who is a student nurse and her grandmother who share the massive £400,000.  Lauren who is just 22 years old collected the winnings on behalf of her grandmother, Sylvia Pask, aged 70 and they are sharing the prize after splitting the cost of the ticket they bought together.

Their wins are part of a £2m prize fund shared by the town's residents living in SA12 6 who take part in the People’s Postcode Lottery.  In total, 42 residents received cheques from £8,330 to £99,960, including 20 players winning £33,320 each.

"We have always said that we would share any prizes we won, as we split the cost of a ticket," said Ms Teesdale, who is currently in her first year studying Mental Health Nursing at Swansea University and also works part time in a local learning, disabilities and mental health home.  "I just never imagined the prize to be so big. Thank goodness for my gran living where she does.  I can now buy myself a house, and not have to worry about paying the mortgage each month from my student budget."

Ms Teesdale, who also works part time in a local learning, disabilities and mental health home, picked up the prize on behalf of her grandmother.  "My gran doesn't really like crowds so I said I would attend the winners party, and call her with the good news.  "I will have to tell her this in person though, otherwise she may faint."  She added: "My gran has always said she would like to go on a cruise - maybe now the whole family can go together."

Players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £17.6 Million for charity in England, Scotland and Wales. With 40p from every £2 spent with People's Postcode Lottery going directly to great causes all over Great Britain.  

One such charity recently supported is the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.  To date, the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £225,332 for the Trust, which has funded the planting of around 18,000 native broadleaf trees between October and March. It is hoped that these trees will go on to create vibrant wildlife habitats, bringing huge environmental benefits to the area and communities.
