Byron Davies (75) and his wife Delith plan to put some of the money towards elevating both their daughters’ and grandsons’ new businesses in the local area.

When People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson revealed the cheque, Byron’s wife, Delith said: “Diolch yn fawr” in her native Welsh tongue which translates to ‘Thank you very much’ in English.

Delith was bouncing up and down with excitement as she said: “I was only expecting a thousand, oh my goodness, diolch yn fawr!”

She joked and added: “I can’t even breathe, let alone speak, and that’s unusual from me!”

When asked how the pair would spend the money Delith said: “I can’t begin to tell you. I’ll get some new glasses for a start.”

Byron was quick to add, he said “I might get a new set of bowls.”

Byron wasn’t going to let the prize distract from his usual routine. To celebrate, he was off to play his usual game of bowls at the local club in Ammanford with his friends, something he’s done for 30 years.

When asked how the couple would celebrate tonight the grandmother of two said: “I’ve got prosecco in the fridge if anybody wants some!”

The generous couple are keen to help family with their business ventures. Daughter Helen opened a nail bar just before Christmas in Llandybïe and their eldest grandson has also opened a barbershop in neighbouring village, Cross Hands.

When asked what that would mean to Helen she said: “That would be wonderful and very much appreciated obviously.”

The other winners were either unavailable or chose to remain anonymous.
