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

The neighbours in Ruishton landed the windfall when TA3 5LE was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery Daily Prize winner on Tuesday, December 29.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes and said: “What a great surprise for our winners, congratulations to them! I’m sure they will have fun with their winnings and I hope they go and treat themselves to something special."

A minimum of 32 per cent 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.

The draw was promoted on behalf of Crisis which has received more than £5.7 million in funding thanks to players.

The charity is dedicated to ending homelessness and throughout the year helps approximately 10,000 people in England, Scotland and Wales.

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