Hyde neighbours scoop Postcode Lottery win

Thirteen people in Hyde are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Windsor Road neighbours in Gee Cross netted the windfall when SK14 5JD was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Tuesday (10 November). 

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt (pictured) sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: "A huge congratulations to our winners in Hyde! I'm sure they'll enjoy spending the cash and treat themselves to something special." 

The last winners in Hyde were back in August when six people living on Church Meadow each won £1,000

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.

The draw was promoted on behalf of Postcode Local Trust. A grant giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery, created to support local community based, grassroots projects with an environmental focus across Great Britain. It focusses on 'improving biodiversity & green spaces, increasing community access to outdoor space and combatting climate change & promoting sustainability'.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding next year.
