Nine people in York were celebrating this weekend after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Danebury Drive neighbours netted the windfall when YO26 5EG was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday (29 August).

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners. He said: “What a fantastic surprise for our winners. Congratulations to them and I hope they have fun spending 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 The Ramblers which has received over £10.1 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The charity works to protect and expand the places where people love to walk.

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