SIX neighbours in Padiham have been celebrating this weekend after receiving a windfall thanks to their lucky postcode.

Postcode Lottery players on Tinedale View netted £1,000 each when BB12 8DX was announced as a daily prize winner on Sunday.

Sending his well wishes to the winners, ambassador Danyl Johnson said:

“What a great surprise to start your week! Congratulations to our winners.”

A minimum of 32 per cent 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 Ramblers which has received over £8.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Ramblers is dedicated to looking after the paths and green spaces of Great Britain and works to create happier, healthier communities.

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

Last month, two people in Burnley were celebrating after winning £1,000 each on the lottery. The Ainslie Street neighbours pocketed the cash when BB12 6RL was announced as the winner.
