Quartet from Duston strike it lucky just in time for Christmas

Four sets of Northampton neighbours got the perfect lockdown pick-me-up by winning £1,000 each just in time for Christmas thanks to their lucky postcode.

The crew from Liberty Drive, Duston, grabbed their grand when NN5 6TU was announced as one of Saturday's daily prize winners with People’s Postcode Lottery.

Judie McCourt and the rest of the People’s Postcode Lottery ambassadors will not be coming knocking on any doors rights now, but still sent their well-wishes to the winners.

Judie said: “Congratulations to all of the winners, what brilliant news to hear on the weekend. I hope they spend the cash on something nice!”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

Saturday's draw was promoted on behalf of the Postcode Care Trust which has a mission to support activities that improve the health and lives of communities. The Trust supports charities and good causes with those purposes through grant funding.
