After finding out the winning prize sum Trevor had a new car in mind for his partner. He said: “I want to buy my partner a Nissan Juke Nismo. She wants one and I want the sporty one in silver.”

Trevor enjoys travelling around the country in his Volkswagen Camper and has his eyes firmly set on a holiday across the length and breadth of the UK.

He joyfully said: “I want to go on a holiday in the UK. There is so many beautiful places to go and I just want to do them all before going abroad.

“I want to do the North Coast 500; I’m just going to get out there and just do it. The North Coast of Scotland all around the top because I live in the middle, I’m the furthest place from the sea, so I just want to go everywhere.”

Trevor has worked throughout the pandemic for a company which works with hospital machines amongst other things. He received the news on his break at work and his first thought was to spread his amazing news. He said: “I’m going to go and tell everybody then I’m going to go back to work. I can’t wait to get a beer.”

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson said: “I’m over the moon for our winner in Aylesbury! I’m sure Trevor will enjoy buying his partner a new car and venturing around the UK in his campervan. Congratulations Trevor!”
