Five people in Royton were celebrating over the weekend after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.
The Oozewood Road neighbours netted the windfall when OL2 5XG was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Sunday (30 August).
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners.
He said: “Congratulations to our winners. What great news for them and I hope they go and treat themselves with 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 £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.
This draw was promoted by The Ramblers, which has received over £10.1 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The charity works to protect and expand the places where people love to walk.
Many good causes close to the winners have also benefited from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding next year.
