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

The Hollingreave Drive neighbours netted the windfall when BB4 8EP was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Monday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners.

She said: “What brilliant news to start your week! Congratulations to our winners.”

This draw was promoted by the Wildlife Trusts which has received over £11.3million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The Wildlife Trusts look after more than 2,300 nature reserves and operate more than 100 visitor and education centres across the country.
