Estate agent wins ‘life-changing’ sum of money in postcode lottery


An estate agent based in Penarth in the Vale of Glamorgan has won a significant amount of money on the postcode lottery, thanks to her dad.

Industry stalwart Debbie Tuhey, 58, won a ‘life-changing’ sum of money after her dad, Terry’s, postcode was drawn as the winner of a £3.2million prize, divided with three other neighbours on Saturday.

Tuhey, who works for David Baker & Co, said: “Oh my God! It’s unbelievable. I can go to Graceland for my 60th!

“I don’t win anything at all. I can’t believe it. It’s going to be life-changing.”

Although Tuhey lives in another location with her husband Keith, she continued playing with her dad Terry’s postcode and managed to double her prize by playing with two tickets while every ticket was worth £320,000.

The estate agent won £640,000, which she hopes to use to plan the holiday of a lifetime to the USA, where she’ll visit the home of musician, Elvis Presley.

Debbie’s husband Keith, 66, said: “Debbie has been playing with this postcode for years and kept doing it even when we moved out. I then started playing at our home in Penarth Heights, hoping one day we’d win.”
