A Cottenham woman is celebrating having won £30,000 thanks to her lucky postcode.
Sandra Unsworth, 65, won the People’s Postcode Lottery’s Street Prize on Saturday (14).
The accounts manager said she is still in shock over the win.
“Winning such a large amount of money is the sort of thing you never think will actually happen to you,” she said.
“What an amazing way to start the year – I think 2017 is going to be a good one.
“My car broke down this weekend – it must have known. So a new car is definitely in order. The best thing is that now I don’t need to worry about costs like this cropping up.”
Sandra is going to celebrate her win with a trip to Tenerife with her husband.
