A school dinner lady from Northampton is delighted to have won £25,000 with People’s Postcode Lottery.

Sharon Collins, aged 47, from Montford Close, St James, was one of three winners on her street to scoop the Street Prize.

The winning trio picked up the lucrative prize after their lucky postcode NN5 5AN was drawn as a winner.

Commenting on her win, Sharon said: “When I got the knock at the door to receive the cheque, I didn’t know whether to cheer or cry. It’s amazing and I can’t believe I’ve won.

“This means a lot to me. My husband Wayne and I deserve a nice holiday and we’ve got five children who’ll be getting spoiled this Christmas.

“I’ve won £10 twice with People’s Postcode Lottery so this big win is third time lucky. I’ll sit the cheque in my bay window just to show people I’ve won!”

Danyl Johnson, People’s Postcode Lottery’s Ambassador, said: “These incredible cheques have definitely put a big smile on our Northampton winners’ faces and it was nice to meet them all.”

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £154.8 Million to date for over 2,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

NBA Gateway Resource Centre in Semilong was awarded more than £18,500 this year for a community health and fitness initiative.
