Two people in Droylsden are celebrating today (Friday) after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.
The Hampson Street neighbours netted the windfall when M43 7EH was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery.
They are the latest in a long line of recent successes through the postcode lottery throughout Tameside.
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt (pictured) sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “What an amazing way to start the weekend! Congratulations to our winners, I’m sure they will be celebrating tonight.”
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.
The draw was promoted by Crisis, which has received over £3.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
Crisis is dedicated to ending homelessness and helps approximately 10,000 people each year through education, housing, employment and health services across England, Scotland and Wales.
Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can next apply for funding in August.
