FIVE people in Trowbridge are celebrating this week after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The neighbours netted the windfall when BA14 6QL was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Tuesday January 21.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson said: “I’m sure this is a great surprise for them and I hope they go out and treat themselves with their winnings.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities.

Players of the People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by the Woodland Trust, which has received over £11.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

It is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity and owns over 1,000 woods across the country. It supports these green areas for both people and wildlife.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefited from players’ support.
