The winner of pchprizes.co.uk’s free prize draw, Sheffield resident, Lorraine Turton, was delighted after being surprised by TV star Keith Chegwin at her home with a cheque for £15,000.
After whizzing around Sheffield on a cash trail in the PCH Prizes taxi, giving out a total of £1,500 to 15 lucky winners that were picked at random, Cheggers headed to Lorraine’s house in a scene reminiscent of the famous ‘Down Your Doorstep’ segment on The Big Breakfast to personally hand her winning cheque over.
Lorraine said: “I’ve been entering the free prize draws on the PCH Prizes website for a few months now but I never dreamt I’d win. It was such a shock to see Cheggers on my doorstep but I’m delighted and it couldn’t have come at a better time with this freezing weather as I can now buy double glazing for my house!”
Cheggers added: “We’ve been all over Sheffield today, handing out cash to winners in the city centre and at Meadowhall to celebrate the £15,000 prize giving. It was great fun seeing people’s shocked faces when we handed them an envelope filled with cash!
“It was fantastic when we knocked on her door as Lorraine was so surprised - she had absolutely no idea she had won and I was delighted to hand her the £15,000 cheque, it’s such a lot of money!”
