TWELVE people in Runcorn have each scooped a cash prize of £1,000 thanks to their postcode.

The Greenhouse Farm Road neighbours landed the windfall when WA7 6PP was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery winner on Tuesday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “A big congratulations to all those who have picked up a prize today in Runcorn. I hope the win will help lift their spirits and I hope they are able to treat themselves to something special with the cash.”

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 The Ramblers, which has received over £8.8 million in funding so far. The charity looks after paths and green spaces all over the country, and encourage people to get outside to boost their health and happiness.
