FOUR people in Warrington are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.
The Highfield Avenue, Appleton, neighbours netted the windfall when WA4 5DT was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday August 1.
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners. He said: “What a great surprise for our winners. I’m sure this news made their weekend and I hope they enjoy their winnings.”
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.
This draw was promoted by Depaul which has received over £10.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
Depaul is a nationwide charity for youth homelessness, it works to tackle the immediate and long-term effects of homelessness and provide safe and stable futures for young people.
Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding from today (August 4).
