So will the prize – they get a share of £3 million, with each winner claiming a six-figure sum.

Can’t wait

The postcode was revealed live on Facebook on Tuesday night
People’s Postcode Lottery Presenters Danyl Johnson and Jeff Brazier will be visiting the city to present cheques to some of the happy winners.

Danyl Johnson said:

  • I can’t wait to congratulate the winners in York.

    Only last month, players in East Riding were celebrating their lottery wins so it’ll be fantastic to be back in Yorkshire once again.

A minimum of 32% of the ticket price goes to charities and good causes.

The Postcode Millions prize is part of a draw promoted by Postcode Local Trust, which provides grants of up to £20,000 for community groups.

Earlier this year, the Snappy Trust in York received £6,000 to help fund a sensory garden.
