SEVEN neighbours in Heywood have had their lockdown made just that little bit better – by bagging a cool £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Dumbarton Drive neighbours netted the windfall when OL10 3QF was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday, August 8.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “What a fantastic surprise for our winners. Congratulations to them and I hope they enjoy their winnings.”

A minimum of 32% 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.

This draw was promoted by Girlguiding which has received over £5.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Girlguiding is active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities.

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