A Peter­bor­ough man who has raised thou­sands for char­ity is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter scoop­ing the Post­code Lot­tery jackpot with his neigh­bours.

Del Singh, David Ri­ley, and Carol Pa­gan of East­field Road all won £30,000 af­ter their post­code was drawn as the Street Prize win­ner on Satur­day. Del (54),has taken part in a num­ber of char­ity projects, and said some of the causes he helped would ben­e­fit. He said: “I do lots of sport­ing events to raise money for char­ity – last year I climbed Kil­i­man­jaro and this year I’m run­ning a half marathon. The fact that play­ers of Peo­ple’s Post­code Lot­tery raise so much for char­ity is one of the main rea­sons I signed up, and I’ll be giv­ing some of my win back to good causes too.”

Kitchen de­signer David (56) said: “I’m go­ing to Thai­land for Christ­mas with a group of friends on a golf­ing hol­i­day so I’ll def­i­nitely put some to­wards that. I used to be a foot­baller so golf is my way of be­ing a bit com­pet­i­tive now – just with walk­ing in­stead of run­ning!”

Carol (68) said: “I have two chil­dren so they’ll each be get­ting some of the win­nings, but my hus­band Jim and I will treat our­selves to some­thing too.”

There was one other win­ner of the prize.
