There were celebrations in Burnley this week after a postcode was picked for the £1,000 People’s Postcode Lottery jackpot.

Those with a ticket and a BB12 6DF postcode were awarded the prize in the fundraising lottery’s daily prize draw on Friday (March 29).

The winning postcode belongs to players in Lockyer Avenue.

Subscriptions to the postcode lottery support a range of charities across the UK, with a minimum of 33 per cent of the ticket prices going to charity.

The People’s Postcode Lottery manages lotteries for 20 charities, with each one having one draw a month.

The lottery is hugely popular nationally and supports "a wide range of charities and good causes across Britain and around the world".

To date, they’ve provided more than £1.1bn in funding which is helping thousands of organisations and projects.
