We have all said it at one time or another: “When I win the lottery I will buy…”
But for the second time this week, this dream has become relativity for Plymouth residents who entered the postcode lottery.
Although the price money may not buy you a private island in the Mediterranean, it could help towards some of those little luxuries we all enjoy.
Five lucky Stonehouse residents are celebrating today after winning £1,000 -each thanks to their lucky postcode.
The Durnford Street neighbours netted the windfall when PL1 3QN was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Wednesday, July 22, 2020.
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners.
“What great news to start your day!” they beamed.
“Congratulations to our winners, I hope they enjoy their winnings.”
On Monday we reported that two residents in a street in Plymstock were also winner’s of People’s Postcode Lottery and similarly won £1000.
A spokesperson for the People’s Postcode Lottery said: “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 Save the Children which has received over £10.1 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.”
“Save the Children connects parents, teachers, and childcare experts to build a brighter future for children across the UK. It works to give children the support they need from the very start of life.
“Many good causes close to the winners have also benefited from players’ support, and local charities can next apply for funding in August.”
In February 2019 however, a share of three million pounds was won by a Plymouth postcode.
The lucky postcode was PL20 7, which saw winners in Horrabridge, Crapstone, Bere Ferrers and Bere Aslston.
Plymouth is clearly a lucky place to live as in 2018, residents on a street in Horrabridge won £210,000 – £30,000 each – in the postcode lottery.
