One Horsham resident will be celebrating a big cash boost this weekend after his postcode RH12 4EE was revealed as a winner £25,000 with People’s Postcode Lottery.

Andy Skinner, 51, was enjoying a day off from his catering job at the airport when he was surprised by People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador and rugby legend Scott Quinnell, who presented him with his £25,000 cheque.

“I’m disappointed I didn’t get Scott Quinnell’s autograph,” he said.

“It was very freaky to see him and the rest of the team show up on my doorstep. My friend is a huge Wales fan so I’ll have to show him the photo of me and Scott so he’ll believe I met him.”

Andy, who has been a player of People’s Postcode Lottery since September last year, is happy he signed up when he did.

“I’ve not been playing for long but I won a tenner quite soon after I signed up and now this,” Andy said. “With prizes every day, it’s pretty good value and very easy to get started.”

Although Andy is not sure how he will spend all his winnings, he has a few ideas.

“I’d like to finish off my garden and get some work done on the house,” he said. “I’m sure we’ll have to give the kids a little something too!”

Andy is hoping to celebrate this week with his wife, Carol, and two children Michael, 21, and Lauren, 22.

“A couple of pints will do me for a celebration,” he added.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Scott Quinnell said: “I really enjoyed meeting Andy today and presenting him with his large cheque. I hope he has a great time celebrating with his family and spending the money. ”

It is not only players like Andy who win by playing People’s Postcode Lottery as good causes across Britain and beyond have now received an amazing £39.9million to date thanks to the support of players like Andy.
