East Lancashire’s luck in the People’s Postcode Lottery continued yesterday with yet another area picked for the £1,000 jackpot.

This time the winning ticket was in Blackburn, and those with a winning ticket and a BB2 4PB postcode were awarded the prize in the daily prize draw on Monday (April 1).

The winning postcode belongs to players in Moorgate Street in the Mill Hill area of the town.

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.
