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

The Oxstalls Lane neighbours netted the windfall when GL2 9HT was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday 10th October 2020.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “What a lovely way to start the weekend!

"Congratulations to our winners, I hope they have fun with 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 on behalf of Postcode Community Trust which provides funding to improve the health and wellbeing of communities across Great Britain.

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