Warren Close in Elmswell has proved to be a lucky street for three winners of the weekend’s People’s Postcode Lottery.

The Saturday Street Prize drew the postcode IP30 9DS and has netted Susan and John Welford £25,000 and Christina Chamberlain has scooped the same amount.

Another player scooped £50,000 after playing two tickets in the lottery.

School sweethearts Susan and John are planning to celebrate their 57th wedding anniversary in style after the win.

Susan said: “We met when we were both 11-years-old and this October we will have been married for 57 years. I think that’s worth celebrating so we’ll be able to plan something really nice now.

“We’ve been saving up for a new car for a while, but now we’ll be able to go out and choose the one we want. My granddaughter will be excited to get the old one.

“It’s absolutely marvellous to win. I’ve posted news of my win on Facebook and I’ve had a lot of people congratulate me.”

Winner Christina said: “ I need to upgrade my own car, not the one that I use for lessons! The new one will be for me to enjoy with my husband Jeff.

“We are going to enjoy spoiling ourselves. We like to go walking with our dog Alfie and going for evening meals, so we’ll make sure we get to do plenty of that. Alfie will get some extra bones too as a treat.”

The People’s Postcode Lottery raises money for charities and good causes across Britain and globally. Players have so far raised £135.8million.
