Four more people in Droylsden are celebrating after they each scooped £1,000 thanks to their lucky postcode.
The neighbours on Somerset Road landed the windfall when M43 7PF was announced as a People's Postcode Lottery Daily Prize winner on Tuesday (29 December).
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes and said: “What a great surprise for our winners, congratulations to them! I’m sure they will have fun with their winnings and I hope they go and treat themselves to something special.”
It follows 13 people on Windsor Road in Droylsden who also received a late Christmas present of £1,000 on Sunday (27 December) through the competition.
It's been a year of great success for players in Tameside, with a number of winners across the borough. Indeed, the biggest winners also came from Droylsden - when over 2,000 players hit the jackpot by sharing a whopping £3 million between them back in August.
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 Crisis, which has received more than £5.7 million in funding thanks to players. The charity is dedicated to ending homelessness and throughout the year helps approximately 10,000 people in England, Scotland and Wales.
Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding next year.
