TWO people in Caersws have scooped £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Trefeglwys Road neighbours netted the windfall when SY17 5HH was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Wednesday, March 29.

Offering her congratulations, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “I’m sure this windfall will help lift the spirits of our winners in Caersws and I hope they’re able to treat themselves to something nice. Well done to all those who have picked up the 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.

This draw was promoted by Oxfam, which has received more than £9.6 million in funding to help support its mission to end the injustice of poverty.

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