TEN people in Widnes were celebrating over the weekend after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Davies Close neighbours netted the windfall when WA8 0EY was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Sunday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners.

He said: “What great news to get over the weekend! Congratulations to our winners, 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 more than £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by Depaul which has received more than £10.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Depaul is a nationwide charity for youth homelessness, it works to tackle the immediate and long-term effects of homelessness and provide safe and stable futures for young people.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding from 4th August.
