TWO Stranraer ladies were celebrating last week upon hearing the had won £30,000 between them with the People’s Postcode Lottery.
Kay Milroy and Liz Armstrong hit the jackpot when their postcode, DG9 0NS, was drawn as the weekly Street Prize winner this week with the charity lottery.
Playing with two tickets, restaurant supervisor Kay scooped a fantastic £20,000 and was absolutely gobsmacked when People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, Judie McCourt, dropped by with her winning cheque.
“I am so shocked and I can’t believe we have won so much,” said Kay, 36.
“My husband and I have been married for five years, but we never managed to get a honeymoon – that will be first thing on the list.”
After surprising Kay, Judie and the People’s Postcode Lottery team headed on to Liz Armstrong’s house. Liz and her husband, Albert, snapped up £10,000 for their winning ticket and were over the moon to find out from Judie that she had won so much.
“I feel like I’m in a trance,” said Liz 63. “When Judie pulled out the cheque for £10,000, I just wanted to collapse, I was shaking so much.”
And the couple already has plans on how to spend their winnings.
“We’ll hopefully pay for our daughter and granddaughter to come over from Gibraltar. They haven’t managed to make it over this year yet, so it will be a lovely treat for them.”
