THREE people in Grasscroft are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Oldham Road neighbours netted the windfall when OL4 4HU was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on today (Thursday, August 13).

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “Congratulations to our winners! What a lovely surprise for them, I hope this news has made their day.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

The 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.
