Downend neighbours win lottery windfall

NINE residents of street in Downend are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Trident Close neighbours landed the windfall when BS16 6TS was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery daily prize winner yesterday.

People's Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery which raises money for charities.

Players sign up, enter their postcode and pay £10 per month to take part.

They are automatically entered into a draw every day of the month, ranging from £10 to a share in a £3 million monthly draw.

There are £1,000 daily jackpots, such as the one won by the Trident Close residents.

A minimum of 32% 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 Girlguiding, which has received over £5.2m in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson (pictured above) said: “What great news to start your week! Congratulations to our winners. I hope they treat themselves with their winnings.”

Local charities can next apply for funding in August.
