NEIGHBOURS in Forden are celebrating today after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The nine residents netted the windfall when SY21 8LT was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Friday, January 10.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners. He said: “I can’t think of better way to start the weekend. Congratulations to our winners in Forden, I’m sure they’ll be celebrating tonight.”

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

This draw was promoted by the Wildlife Trusts which have received over £10.7 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The trusts run around ten thousand wildlife events each year and work to make sure that everyone has access to wildlife and nature in their daily lives.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support. The next opportunity local charities will have to apply for funding will be January 21.
