Four people in Stoulton, near Drakes Broughton, are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The neighbours netted the windfall when their postcode was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Tuesday, April 7.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “What a lovely way to start your day! Congratulations to our winners, I hope they treat themselves to something nice with their winnings.”

In the April and May draws, People’s Postcode Lottery will be doubling the amount of postcodes winning £1,000 every day, with 40 postcodes receiving the daily prize.

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

Local charities can next apply for funding in August.
