Two people in Ryde are celebrating today after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The neighbours netted the windfall when PO33 1LF was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Friday 12th June 2020.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners. He said: “Congratulations! I’m so happy for our winners today, I’m sure this news has made their weekend.”

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of 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 Girlguiding which has received over £5.2 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 next apply for funding in August.
